The Annual Benefit Supper runs that Friday (the 6th) from 4 to 7pm and features grilled pork loin and chicken quarters with baked potato, fruit salad, green beans, dinner roll, beverage, and your choice of some great homemade pies. The volunteer grillers prepare five star quality meat that is marinated in their own special marinade and they have an outstanding reputation with those of us who have already sampled their wares. You can have your meal right there in the Fairview Haven Cafeteria or, you can have them fix it up for you to carry out. Treat the family, and yourself, that evening and let these folks fix your dinner for you.
