Chili Cook Off! Lanark is preparing for some great chili and fun, this Saturday, Feb. 25 from noon to 4 p.m. at Chillas Hall in Lanark Village. We will have chili from some of our wonderful cooks in the area. You get three tastes, a bowl of chili of your choice (with the fixings), chips and a brownie for a $10 donation. You will get to vote on your favorite chili. We have some amazing donated items for the Silent Auction. There are many restaurants, local businesses have donated items, a game of golf and a stay at St. James Golf Resort, grocery store gift certificates and much more. This is a fundraiser for the non-profit Lanark Village Association, Inc. Come by, have a bowl of chili, bid on your favorite great auction items and tell Janie Shafer happy birthday (Janie is responsible for acquiring all of the auction items – thank you Janie and all who participated).
The Lanark Village Boat Club Pancake Breakfast was a success, as always, with all their St. Patrick Day Green decoration. Everyone is welcome. It is a $7 donation and lots of fun.
Okay, get your calendars out: Come to our Spring Fling Party! Saturday, March 4 at Chillas Hall in Lanark Village on Heffernan Drive, 7 p.m. to ?. So throw on your favorite beach cover-up, spring time outfit or come as you are, just come. DJ Greg K will be entertaining us while we dance and listen to our favorite music. There will be karaoke, skits, dances and all for your fun. Bring a snack to share and what you want to drink. There is a $7 donation and all adults are welcome. You don’t have to be a member or even from Lanark to attend.
We Still Need Firefighting Volunteers: Any questions should be directed to Robert Amick, [email protected] Lanark Area Is Still Under A Burn Ban. Again, it has nothing to do with the weather. It has to do with not having a functioning fire department.
Please contain your garbage, the bears are still very active and those of you who are not taking care of your garbage are feeding the bears. Those of you who leave your cans on the right-of-way welcome others to throw their garbage in unprotected, the bears get them and your neighbors have to pick up the mess. It is only a matter of consideration for your neighbor. Thank you.
