Cedar Community Hall will host a dinner this Saturday, Nov. 16

This fall brought the sort of harvest that will allow the community to tuck into a feast of local fare.

Cedar Community Hall will host a dinner this Saturday, Nov. 16, to celebrate with area residents. The event will include a dinner of “locally grown comfort food,” according to a press release, prepared by Coco Café. There will be a no-host bar, silent auction, live music and a ‘patchwork of pies’ contest.

“We’re celebrating all things Cedar,” said Wanda Zink, hall treasurer, in a press release, adding that it’s a time of renewal at the hall with new paint, new paving and new board members.

Shepherd’s pie, vegetarian lasagna and more is on the menu.

The press release thanked sponsors and said the dinner will be a community effort.

“From teenagers to the Lions’ Club, we have a huge range of people who are working to put on this dinner,” said Kate Girard, volunteer. “Many farmers have also donated food, and we’re grateful for them sharing their hard-earned produce.”

Novice and expert bakers are asked to bring homemade fruit pies on tin foil pie plates to the hall between 1-3 p.m. Nov. 16.

Tickets to the dinner are $25 or $15 for children ages 6-12 and may be purchased at Cedar General Store, Friesen’s Rental and Hardware, by phone at 250-722-2112 or online at http://cedarcommunityhall.ca.
