Greek Festival, Meals to Go very flavourful
Coun. Don Vassiliadis and Dean Pappas stopped in at the Community Care Peterborough (CCP) office to offer their support for CCP’s Meals to Go fundraiser, and to help promote the upcoming Greek Festival happening June 11 at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church at 406 Parkhill Rd. E.
The festival, returning after its COVID-19 hiatus, runs from noon until 7 p.m. and will feature music, dancers and food.
“Each (Meals to Go) delivery will receive a copy of the upcoming Greek Festival event poster,” said Alicia Vandine, donor relations and communications lead. “It’s a great cross promotion to celebrate this year’s Greek inspired Meals to Go menu. We are happy to help spread the word and encourage residents to attend this wonderful community-based cultural event on June 11, too.”
During the Meals to Go fundraiser, local businesses can order Greek-themed lunches for $10 each and have them delivered to their workplace in Peterborough or Lakefield. Meals to Go lunches are sold out for May 17 delivery in Peterborough but orders are still being accepted for the May 31delivery. Orders must be placed by May 24.
The lunches consist of a Greek salad, a chicken tzatziki pita and a fresh fruit cup medley. There are also vegetarian, gluten-free and lactose-free menu options available upon request. All lunches are delivered by Community Care’s Meals on Wheels volunteers.
Businesses can order their lunches online. For complete menu details and to place an order, visit commcareptbo.org/mealstogo. Downloadable paper order forms are also available there or by calling the Peterborough office at 705-7427067 or the Lakefield office at 705652-8655.
May is Healthy Foot Month and, in recognition, Ashburnham Foot & Ankle Centre is holding a sock drive. Please drop off your sock donations by May 31 to the clinic located at 120 Hunter St. E. All socks received will be donated to The Brock Mission and Cameron House.
Stompin’ Tom trip
