Cook­shire Fair BBQ this Satur­day

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Cook­shire

Forover twenty years the Cook­shire Fair Board has been host­ing a very pop­u­lar beef and pork BBQ to raise funds for the Cook­shire Fair. That BBQ will be held this Satur­day, May 28th, at the MacAu­lay Cen­tre of the Cook­shire Fair­grounds, be­gin­ning at 5 pm, and af­ter hear­ing the menu from or­ga­nizer Mac Fraser, no won­der it`s so pop­u­lar! Be­sides the beef and pork, cooked to per­fec­tion by Syl­vain Crete, also on the all-you-can-eat menu is roast pota­toes, mixed veg­eta­bles, mush­room gravy, cole slaw, home-made rolls, cru­dités and dip, horse­rad­ish, sour cream and ap­ple­sauce, home-made cake for dessert, and lots of cof­fee and juice to wash it all down. Kids un­der five eat for free.

Fol­low­ing the feast, Dave Bes­sant and his band will take to the stage and pro­vide dancing mu­sic all evening, be­gin­ning at around 9:00 pm. “Ev­ery­thing is done by vol­un­teers so all of our prof­its go right to­wards the Fair. We’re ex­pect­ing about five hun­dred peo­ple,” said Mr. Fraser.

Fi­nanc­ing coun­try fairs is al­ways a tremen­dous chal­lenge for fair boards. “It’s not a good time for non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions but we try to look on the pos­i­tive side,” added Mr. Fraser.
