NEW LONDON – The Board of Directors at the New London Community Complex is ready for another “Evening of Fine Food and Music.” Their fourth annual fundraising evening will be held Saturday, July 19, featuring a four-course lobster dinner (steak option) and entertainment by P.E.I. musical group, Eddy Quinn & Friends.
The proceeds from the dinner will be applied directly to the mortgage remaining on the New London building.
The New London Community Complex is operated by a volunteer elected board representing the ownership communities of Grahams Road, New London, Stanley Bridge, Clinton, North Granville, Long River, Springbrook, and French River/Park Corner.
The facility is available to community groups for fundraising activities and is available free of charge for benefits organized in support of individuals or families in the area.
Over the past eight years, two major upgrades have been done to the facility with the support of the provincial and federal governments. The portion of the debt carried by the complex itself is repaid from income generated from banquets, Sunday brunches, the Summer Bakery and from fundraising activities such as this dinner.
The dinner includes salad, mussels, lobster (or steak), dessert and tea and coffee.
Eddy Quinn & Friends will entertain following the meal. Quinn, who is known as lead singer with Fiddlers’ Sons will be accompanied by Courtney Hogan and Mark Rooney.
Tickets for this dinner/music event are $50 each with a charitable receipt issued for half that amount. Tickets may be obtained by contacting Cheryl (886-3260), Bev (886-2474), or Michele (886-5091).
Also the Sunday breakfasts offered this summer at the New London complex began on July 6. They operate from 8-11 a.m. each Sunday. Organizers welcome volunteers to help out with these events.
