This event would not have been what it was without a variety of bakers throughout the region and the Native Women’s Association donating their culinary expertise where we saw 41 home made pies auctioned by community auctioneers.
Silent auction items were donated by Tolko Industries, North Peace Tribal Council, ACE Hardware, La Crete Home Hardware, Lime Blue, Country Gardens B & B, La Crete UFA, Prairie Coast John Deere, Inner Peace Flights and several community members which were on display for the biddings wars. And lastly, the gracious people who prepared a wonderful meal satisfying many tummies. Again thank you all from the bottom of our hearts as we work together for our seniors & elders across the Mackenzie Region.
