DUNCAN ROTARY CLUB THROWS A GREAT OKTOBERFEST PARTY

After a three-year hiatus, the Duncan Rotary Club threw a great Oktoberfest party on October 15 at Mellor Hall, Cowichan Exhibition Grounds.  

Roughly 200 partygoers came to dance to the music of the Doctors of Rock n’ Roll, sample a variety of beers from Red Arrow Brewing and enjoy a fine German meal of bratwurst sausage-on-a-bun, sauerkraut and potato salad prepared by our cookout team! The Cowichan Green Community baked delicious apple strudel that was a popular seller after dinner.

In addition to great food and great music, there were several evening highlights:

  • The Old Firehouse Wine Bar donated gift certificates for the best-dressed female, male, and couple attired in their finest German Dirndl and Lederhosen.
  • Members of the Cowichan Green Community also helped with a 50/50 draw resulting in a substantial prize for one lucky ticket holder. 
  • The Club hosted members of Rowing Canada, who have recently moved to the Cowichan Valley.

The evening raised over $5,000 in support of the Pregnancy Food Connections, a Cowichan Valley program aimed at increasing access for low-income moms to nutritious foods during pregnancy to help achieve the healthiest mothers and babies possible! 

The Rotary Club wants to thank several local businesses that made this fund-raiser possible:

  • Cowichan Exhibition
  • Duncan Butcher Shop
  • Portofino Bakery
  • Old Farm Market
  • Red Arrow Brewing Company
  • The Old Firehouse Wine Bar

Ein Prosit!
