It appears that summer has arrived, and with it, the opportunity for outdoor gatherings and barbeques with family and friends.

What better way to share food with your close ones than having some homemade Italian sausages to put on the grill?

The Nelson Italian-Canadian Society is holding their 5th Annual Italian Sausage Fundraiser. These tasty sausages have NO artificial additives and are Gluten Free and Dairy Free.

The NICS Online Store is open for orders of hot and mild sausages as well as seasoned meat without the casings.

The sale runs from May 20 to June 3, 2024.

The cost per package of six sausages or equivalent weight package of seasoned meat without casings is $15, same price as last year.

“Don’t delay ordering,” said NICS President Paul Boscariol offering some advice to potential customers.

“There is a limited supply available, and they ALWAYS sell out!”

“We always feel bad when we have to tell latecomers that there is no product left,” Boscariol added.

Through fundraising efforts such as this one the Nelson Italian-Canadian Society provides annual support for local student scholarships, local charities and non-profit organizations such as Nelson Community Food Centre, KidSport Nelson, KERPA, the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation and others.

The NICS is grateful for the community’s ongoing support of their fundraising efforts and looks forward to serving you their tasty homemade sausages.

The pickup dates for orders are Friday, June 14, from 3 pm to 6 pm and Saturday, June 15 from 9 am to noon at the Nelson District Rod & Gun Club Hall.

If you have any questions, please contact Paul Boscariol at 250-505-6482 or email
