DEBLOIS -- The Valentine’s Day 25-Mile Dinner the Cascumpec Bay Watershed Association (CBWA) hosted last year proved so successful that the organization is offering it again. 

It will be held in the DeBlois Community Centre on Friday, February 14, getting underway at 6:30 p.m.

All the ingredients for the dinner – the potatoes, beef, carrots, turnips, blueberries and more – were grown within a 25-mile radius in West Prince explained CBWA coordinator and one of the dinner’s organizers, John Lane.

Proceeds from ticket sales will support the organization’s watershed restoration and enhancement work. Lane said the organization’s activities include planting trees along streams, removing debris from brooks, building silt control devices and improving the overall water quality of the watersheds. Last year CBWA had five workers involved in projects in five streams.

Lane said the CBWA has already commenced planning for this year. They hope to be involved in major restoration work in the tributaries of the Mill and Huntley rivers and in Profit’s Pond. Significant funding from all levels of government, as well as proceeds from the dinner will be needed to make the projects a reality, he said.

Dinner tickets are $40 a couple and can be purchased by calling Lane, 853-2090, or any member of the CBWA. Only a limited number of tickets are being sold.
