The tasty aroma of a home cooked beef dip dinner filled the air in the Fort St. James Secondary School gymnasium on Oct. 29.
The Stuart Lake Outreach Group held their 4th annual Beef Dip Dinner in support of the Fort St. James Food Bank.
This event is the largest in support of the Food Bank and Judy Greenaway, treasurer for Stuart Lake Outreach, was thrilled to cook and prepare for the event that brought out a good crowd.
According to the society, they have doubled the number of hampers they are giving out.
“Numbers have drastically increased,” Greenaway said.
Rev. Gwen Andrews, president of the Society, was ready to serve with other dedicated volunteers as people lined up in anticipation of a most delectable dinner and delicious desserts.
Stuart Lake Outreach became an organization in July, 2014. They were financed through the Anglican Church until 2015 and they now have charity status.
The Society continues to serve two meals a week at the Anglican Church in Fort St. James.
The event was complete with a table full of warm knitted goods available for purchase by donation.
After dinner, there was a silent auction and live auction with great prizes up for grabs.
