‘Celebrating Community’ Monthly Lunches!
Enjoy a home-cooked meal, music, games, prizes, and a lot of laughter at our monthly Celebrating Community Lunch – a fixture at Alex House since 1992. Lunches are held the second Wednesday of the month September through June.
We kicked off a new season in September - and, as usual, it was a packed house! Patrons enjoyed Chef Eva's take on "Celebrating Oceans," with salmon, seaweed rice and cucumber salad followed by shortbread for dessert. The musical entertainment from Barry Wilson was a huge hit; and people learned a lot from our famous Fun Facts Quiz.
Every year we explore a different theme to celebrate and this season we are Celebrating Biodiversity. On Oct 10, we celebrate endangered species with a vegetarian menu featuring Linguine Primavera, and on Nov 14 we celebrate mountains with a main course of lamb. Cash-only cost is $10 ($8 for members), payable at the door. Call our front desk to register at 604-535-0015.
The "ladies who lunch!" - or, more appropriately, "the ladies who prepare, serve, and clean up after lunch!" Our warm gratitude to our kitchen volunteers and Alex House caterer Eva Sznajder for all they do to make our monthly Celebrating Community Lunches happen. Here they relax with punch after creating an intimate lunch for eighty at our popular Christmas meal.
Lunches happen on the second Wednesday of every month, from noon to 1:30. To register call our front office at 604-535-0015.
