Keeping it local in the Valley
By Moe Lyons
It’s time again for the Slocan Valley’s winter community feast and celebration, the Locavores’ Feast, also known as the 100 Mile Potluck.
Everyone is invited to come and schmooze with their friends and neighbours while devouring each others’ hoarded harvest. The feast is on Saturday, Jan. 29 at the Vallican Whole Community Centre, 3762 Little Slocan River Rd. Doors open at 5 p.m., dinner is at 6 p.m.
This semi-annual event is always a big hit with tons of scrumptious food provided by everyone for everyone.
The evening also features a silent auction offering local goods and services as well as gently used items of great value. If you have something you would like to contribute, bring it and it will be added to the table.
After dinner, everyone is invited to gather their courage and do something interesting and/or entertaining on the Open Stage. If stage fright will not permit such an adventurous undertaking, being an appreciative audience member is tremendously important as well.
The Feast is a fundraiser for the Rural Alternatives Research and Training Society (RARTS), parent organization of the Vallican Whole Community Centre. Admission is by donation and a potluck item.
