Library progressive dinner
The 25th annual Fraser Valley Library Progressive Dinner held on Dec. 7 was a great-tasting success. Participants were able to choose between two walking routes and a bus route. All the participants were left with a wonderful eating experience and a dose of holiday cheer.
We would like to thank all the generous restaurants who donated food and staff to create another successful fundraiser for the Friends of the Grand County Library. One hundred percent of the funds raised will be donated to our Grand County Library District.
Hors d’oeuvres and wine were provided by: Creekside Eatery, Alberto’s, and Back Country Grill. The soup and salad course was donated by Bistro 28, Randi’s and Mountain Rose Cafe. Entrees were supplied by Tabernash Tavern, and entrees and wine by Deno’s and Fontenot’s. The final sweet touch were the desserts along with coffee and tea enjoyed at Emilie’s, The Library and Gasthaus Eichler. The wine poured at many of the restaurants was generously donated by Stacey O’Brien and Heather of National Distributors.
The evening ended with a visit to Smokin’ Moes to enjoy after dinner drinks and hear live music provided by the Grand County Blues Society. This wonderful musical addition was made possible through the efforts of Ali and Brian Grayson.
Our grateful thanks for the bus and driver provided by Mike Fudge of First Student who provided service for the bus route.
Special thanks to Laurie Talbott for arranging all the restaurants to carry on this wonderful tradition and to all the participants who bought tickets for this event and joined us for the walk or ride. We owe a debt of gratitude to all the wonderful staff at Fraser Valley Library for helping to promote and coordinate this fundraiser.
We hope to see all of you and some new faces at next year’s FVL Progressive Dinner!
