Breakfast ticket deadline nears
Those wanting to attend the Fort Frances Kiwanis Club’s annual Good Friday breakfast should wait no longer, with tickets only available until noon next Wednesday (March 27).
Diane Maxey, who is spearheading the event with fellow Kiwanian June Caul, said tickets are moving slowly, but added “this is a last-minute town” and she expects sales to pick up soon.
“We’d like everybody to have them by the beginning of the week,” she said, adding she’s hopeful the event will be as popular as ever.
Tickets, which cost $10 each, are available at Green’s Brandsource and Lidkea Optometry, as well as from Maxey (274-7309) and Caul (274-2209).
Maxey stressed tickets will not be sold at the door.
The breakfast will take place on Good Friday (March 29) at 8 a.m. at the Rendez-Vous.
As in past years, it will feature a full breakfast buffet of eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, fruit, and more.
Allan Yerxa, of St. John’s Anglican Church here, will be the guest speaker while the “Fort Harmonies,” the choir led by Maxey, will provide the music.
Maxey urged everyone to attend the event, noting it does not take up your whole morning and should be over by 9:30 a.m.—just in time for folks to attend their respective church services that day if they so choose.
The Good Friday breakfast began here back in 1994 by Kiwanis past governor Ken Koprowski.
The purpose of the event is to celebrate Good Friday in a spirit of unity with a non-denominational event.
It’s also a way for the Kiwanis to say “thank you” to the public for its support.
