Fraser Valley Librarys Progressive Dinner was a big hit

To the Editor:For the 19th year, the annual Fraser Valley Librarys Progressive Dinner met its goal of Eat, Drink, Be Merry and raise Money too.The Dec. 5 walking and bus tours of local restaurants were delicious, and with fat snowflakes falling by the end of the evening, it was a truly festive occasion.Accolades go to the following for their generous donations of food and services:Hors doeuvres and wine were served by Carols & Marias, Denos Mountain Bistro, Mirasol Cantina, and Untamed Southwest Grill.The soup and salad course was at The Mountain Rose Caf, Mama Falzittos, Hernandos Pizza Pub and The Crooked Creek Saloon.Carvers, Randis Irish Pub, Fontenots Fresh Seafood & Grill and the Five Mountain Tavern at the Vintage Hotel offered the entree with wine.The last course of dessert and coffee polished off a perfect meal at The Green Olive Italian Steakhouse, Gasthaus Eichler, The Moffat Station at the Winter Park Mountain Lodge and The Hungry Bear.Finishing with a flourish, Smokin Moes Ribhouse & Saloon served after dinner drinks to the music of Gary Key and John Catt of the Blues Society.And Verso Cellars donated wine at several of the venues too.Excellent bus service was courtesy of First Student, Lift Bus driven by Dennis Mahoney, and Beaver Village Condominiums, Jim Colthurst driving, now a Progressive Dinner tradition. Kudos to Laurie Talbott for the huge job of organizing all these fine restaurants, Sue Haith and Melinda McWilliams for selling tickets and the Fraser Valley Library staff for all their generous time and help. Our party hats are off to all of you who donated and those of you who shared in this fun evening to help the library. See you next year.
