Turkey Roast back on again in Rossland

The annual Rossland Turkey Roast is back on again, though the date has been pushed back to March 29.

The annual Turkey Roast is back on again, though the date has been pushed back one week from the original time.

The potluck dinner will now be held on March 29 at Red Mountain Resort and is once again in need of volunteers. The roast was originally supposed to be on March 22, was then cancelled and is now, as of this week, back on again.

The event is put on by the Spirit of Red, which hopes that everyone attending will bring a contribution to the potluck.

They suggest an appetizer, a main course, a salad or a dessert.If cooking is not your thing, then the society suggests a $5 donation to join in the feast. The donation will help to cover costs associated with the event, such as the free transport from town to the hill, security and rental fees.

They also ask that if you are bringing a turkey or ham, then it should be cooked and sliced prior to arrival.The event will be held either on the sun deck or in the conference centre of the lodge at Red depending on weather.

Drinks will be available at Rafters. There will be no fire pit this year.

For more info or to volunteer for the event, contact Liz Nesbitt, event coordinator, at 362-5745.
