Park­beg com­mu­nity ral­lies for fowl sup­per

Moose Jaw Express.com - - News - By Ron Wal­ter for Moose Jaw Ex­press

It had rained a lit­tle and the door on the Park­beg Hall jammed.

“It’s been like that ever since I can re­mem­ber,” said Carl Win­kler, a for­mer res­i­dent re­turn­ing for the an­nual fowl sup­per.

The Park­beg fowl sup­per, cel­e­brat­ing thanks for an­other har­vest, has been around for as long as peo­ple can re­mem­ber.

At last year’s sup­per some or­ga­niz­ers in­di­cated that might be the last sup­per be­cause they were too short of vol­un­teers. How­ever, the com­mu­nity pulled to­gether, again re­cruit­ing some for­mer res­i­dents to help with the 2018 sup­per.

While the or­ga­niz­ers made last minute prepa­ra­tions, guests vis­ited up­stairs. The vis­it­ing con­tin­ued as guests waited for the sec­ond and third sit­tings.

One guest re­marked that the chance to visit is one rea­son for com­ing to the sup­per.

For guests who find the base­ment stairs too steep, or­ga­niz­ers had some ta­bles set up up­stairs.

When the sup­per was over Vi­vian Bar­ber, of one the or­ga­niz­ers, talked about next year’s fowl sup­per. “You’re go­ing to have one?” asked some­one.

“I’m pretty sure,” replied Bar­ber.

For din­ers who missed the Park­beg sup­per, there are still many op­tions to sat­isfy the crav­ing for tur­key, home­made pies and lots of so­cial vis­it­ing.

Some of the com­ing sup­pers in­clude: Moose Jaw Ea­gles Club, Oct. 21, from 4 to 6 p.m.; Trin­ity United Church in Moose Jaw, Oct. 21 with sit­tings at 5 and 6 p.m.; Rowletta, Oct. 21 at the Civic Cen­tre from 4 to 7 p.m.; Cen­tral Butte, Oct. 28 from 5 to 7 p.m.; and Mort­lach, Nov. 4 from 4:30 to 7 p.m.
