Annual Turkey Roast in Rossland coming up

Red Mountain Resort and the Spirit of Red are having their annual Turkey Roast. The event is a fundraiser. Volunteers are also needed.

Get your turkey or other potluck foods ready as Red Mountain Resort and the Spirit of Red is having their annual Turkey Roast.

Lisa Wegner, events co-ordinator for the Spirit of Red, said the event is about celebrating something unique to Rossland and began with a group of Americans who were so thankful that Rossland existed that they had a turkey roast.

Wegner said that if you don’t have the cooking touch, then you can always bring a $5 donation to take part in the feast. The donation goes to Spirit of Red.

Wegner adds that for those who bring a food, be it a turkey, ham or another dish, make sure it’s ready to go, as they won’t have time or the volunteers to carve the food as well.

The event is Thursday March 22 at the Sourdough Deck. It begins at 4:30 p.m. and there will be a shuttle service every half hour starting at 8 p.m.

The Spirit of Red is also looking for volunteers for the event so if interested, contact Lorilie Jones at Red’s guest services, 362-7384 ext. 201.
