Phone 327-3024 Now is the time for FUR E P A C I L STORAGE A N REMODELING N G LETHBRIDGE FURRIERS Encouraged by the success of the 1970, 1971, ard 1972 barbecues, the Porcupine Hills District Council of the Boy Scouts of Canada is planning a bigger and better event for June 9. This will be held at the Wil- low CrfeeU Provincial Park west of Stavely. The commit- tee, composed of representa- tives from the Cub and Scout Groups Of Stavely, Clares- holm, Granum and Fort Mac- leocl, which makes up the Porcupine Hills District, is under the co-chairmanship of Lola Albert and Garnet Stev- ens, both of Fort Macleorl. Ray Ohler and Axel Sund- quist, who barbecued the beef to perfection at the previous barbecues and at numerous events in the Stavely area, have again offered to carry out this important function this year. This will ensure that the same delicious beef will be served on buns with beans. It is planned to have sufficient beef and beans to cope with the appetites of both the adults and the three plate hungry boys. Due to higher costs this year, the committe is serving the barbecue on an "all you can eat" basis at per person, and preschoolers can eat free. Tickets may be ob- tained from any Cub, Scout, Venturer, or Leader, and, of course, will be sold at the barbecue. It is firmly planned to hold the barbecue at Willow Creek Park, which is a lovely spot for an outdoor event, as many people discovered the three previous years. However, if the prayers of the rural peo- ple are answered and we have inclement weather, ar- rangements have been made to stage the barbecue in the Stavely arena. Entertainment during the barbecue will include the Clft-esholm Band under the direction cf Art Dee of Cal- gary. Sky Divers from the district are planning a "Dive In" for the barbecue. Watch for further data on this and mark your calendar now June 9. for the Fourth Annual Porcupine Hills Boy Scout Barbecue and plan to attend. It's the biggest food bargin in the West and your attendance will provide your family with an enjoyable evening and at the same time assist the District Council in providing more and better Cubbing ard Scouting for the boys. A warm wel- come is extended to everyone %vho enjoys a barbecue in a very pleasant surroundings.
