Bathurst Rotary Club helps Veterans

In this time of COVID 19, the Royal Canadian Legion, Bathurst, has experienced substantially less donations to this year’s Poppy Campaign. Therefore, the Rotary Club of Bathurst decided to donate $1000 to this worthy cause.
Lest We Forget.

The Rotary Club of Bathurst will be hosting a drive through RibFest on the 25th, 26th and 27th of September 2020.
1. We will have two ribbers this year;
Texas Rangers and,
Crabby BBQ Shack.


2. Open from 11 am to 8 pm on 25 and 26 September, and from 11 am to 6 pm on 27 September.
3. COVID 19 measures will be in place to protect your, and our, health.
4. Vehicles will need to depart the parking lot immediately after purchases are made.
5. The location for the Ribfest will be as in previous years, the parking lot between Harbourview Boulevard and Cunard St, Bathurst.

 


6. Menus for both ribbers are included with this post. It is suggested you decide what you wish to order beforehand. The ribbers will be accepting cash, debit and credit cards. All prices include taxes.


7. As the ribbers are not selling pop or water, Rotarians will be selling these at $2 each. CASH ONLY. Please have your toonies or correct change available so that we can expedite the traffic flow and reduce currency handling.
A traffic flow map has been added.
The Rotary Club of Bathurst wishes to extend a big thank our sponsors from previous years. Our success would not have been possible without your support.
