Pot Luck Dinner – Let’s Celebrate Together on October 28th

Let’s Celebrate Together: We have lots to celebrate! As a united community let’s all gather together here at the school on Tuesday, October 28, (6:00 – 7:30 pm) to celebrate Thanksgiving, Mi’kmaq Heritage Month, Eid al-Adha, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Diwali. The centre of many holidays and celebrations is the sharing of a meal with family and friends. In conjunction with our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) we will be hosting a Park West Community Pot Luck Dinner. Each family is asked to bring a “pot luck” family-size dish of food to share. It can be a salad, casserole, entree, or dessert. If it is to be served hot, please bring it warmed up and ready to be served. Include a serving utensil. Label the dish and serving utensil with your name so they get returned to you. We are hoping to have a huge smorgasbord of tasty food to share from countries all around the world. Please be sure to include a recipe card with a list of ingredients in the food you bring so that people with food sensitivities and allergies can be aware. Food can be brought with you or dropped off in advance 4:30 to 5:30 pm. Cutlery, plates, napkins, and water will be provided. There will be multi-cultural entertainment throughout the evening. You are encouraged to wear your ethnic clothing to represent your cultural heritage. Last year over 300 people attended. We hope to see you this year. Bring your family and friends. This event is for everyone. If you have questions contact Lynn Anderson at 443-1942 or glennanderson@ns.sympatico.ca
