Celebrations to be fundraisers for community

  • Print

The Centennial Celebrations for the Rural Municipality of Cartier will serve as fundraisers for several Cartier organizations. Kicking off the Celebrations on Fri., June 13,  the St. Eustache Community Centre will be buzzing with food, music and dancing as the weekend begins in true prairie tradition.

The Cartier Senior Citizens Support Committee will be hosting a Spud & Steak Barbecue fundraiser from 6 to 8 p.m. The barbecue dinner will include a steak, potato, vegetables, coleslaw, dinner bun, pop or bottled water and dessert. Attendees can fill their plates and catch the dinner entertainment provided by the Portage Steppers, who perform at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at several local businesses, including the Rural Municipality office in Elie.

The night doesn’t end there, though!

The St. Eustache Community Centre will feature The Crossroads Band at a fundraising social following the barbecue, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Playing everything from blues, classic rock and little bit of country, this family-friendly party is a must-attend.

Tickets are $10, though kids 10 and under get in free, and they are also available at several local businesses, including the RM office in Elie.

Saturday’s Celebration Festival begins at 1 p.m. with the unveiling of the monumental clock at Maggie Park followed by a Centennial Parade.

The Prairie Sky Child Care Centre will be cooking up quite a menu for the canteen at the Vets Hall on the festival grounds. Festival-goers can order typical canteen food, such as hot dogs and hamburgers but Prairie Sky Child Care is shaking it up a bit with home-made poutine and "taco in a bag". Canteen hours are 1 to 5 p.m.

The second annual Cartier Fire Truck Pull for CancerCare is already accepting team registrations. Teams of 10 submit a donation of minimum $100 to pull a 33,000-pound fire truck 60 feet in the fastest time possible.

Is your family up for a friendly community baseball game?

The Elie Community Centre will play host to a family baseball tournament beginning at 2 p.m. Sign-up forms are available at the RM office in Elie and online.

Quenching adult thirsts won’t be a problem for the Elie Community Centre.

A fundraising beer garden, located outside the centre, will be open from 4 to 10:30 p.m. (Minors will not be permitted inside the beer garden.)

More information on fundraising activities and events, as well as sign-up forms, can be found online at www.rm-cartier.mb.ca
