Blue­grass BBQ to aid the birds

Le Ni­choir still leads na­tio­nal con­test

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

It’s an event that’s more than a mou­th­ful but one cer­tain to aid a Hud­son bird re­ha­bi­li­ta­tion centre that is al­so in the lead in the fi­nal week of vo­ting in a na­tion­wide po­pu­la­ri­ty con­test on so­cial me­dia site Fa­ce­book.

The first, 2 Barn Owls Billy Boots Blue Grass BBQ Be­ne­fit For the Birds, ta­king place Sa­tur­day in Hud­son, will help Le Ni­choir Wild Bird Re­ha­bi­li­ta­tion Centre do more of the good works it has done for the past 18 years. The out­door par­ty will fea­ture works by lo­cal ar­ti­sans, kiosks, mu­sic, work­shops, chi­li, beer and more than a lit­tle joie de vivre.

Ri­gaud ba­sed mi­cro-bras­se­rie Le Cas­tor will be on hand with lo­cal­ly pro­du­ced beer, while other area mer­chants will al­so pro­vide goo­dies in­clu­ding ve­ge­ta­rian chi­li by Eve­ry­day Gourmet, mi­ni pul­led pork by LeBa­ron Bites, and cof­fee and des­serts by Que de Bonnes Choses. There will al­so be de­mons­tra­tions and work­shops, as well as a raffle.

Sa­tur­day will al­so be the fi­nal day to vote in Ja­mie­son Vi­ta­mins’ con­test Call For The Wild! that will see se­ve­ral non-pro­fit or­ga­ni­za­tions across Ca­na­da ta­king home part of a $100,000 grant. Le Ni­choir, which was in the lead as of Mon­day af­ter­noon, is on tap to earn more than $38,000, thanks to the 25,411 votes it had up to that point.

Le Ni­choir is de­di­ca­ted to the ethi­cal care and treat­ment of in­ju­red and or­pha­ned wild birds, and to the birds’ re­lease back in­to their na­tu­ral ha­bi­tat once hea­led.

The 2 Barn Owls Billy Boots Blue Grass BBQ Be­ne­fit For the Birds, ta­king place rain or shine Sept. 15 from noon to 4 p.m., will be held at 422C, Main street, Hud­son.
