The 20th Annual North Grenville Community Sweetheart Brunch will take place at the North Grenville Municipal Centre this Sunday, February 11, from 8.30 am until 1.00 pm. Here is the big heart of North Grenville in action!

This is one of the really big events on the calendar, a guaranteed good time, with great food, great music, and a wonderful atmosphere, as the North Grenville community comes together in a special way to raise funds for good causes. Celebrating its 20th year, the Sweetheart Brunch is presented by the Knights of Columbus Council 5333, and made possible by the major sponsors: Tallman Truck Centre, G. Tackaberry and Sons Construction Co. Ltd., and Scotiabank, Kemptville, as well as many other local generous sponsors and supporters.

Tickets are just $10 for adults, and $5 for children 6 – 11 years, while those under 6 eat for free! Admission includes a delicious smorgasbord of hot food, or continental choices; exciting live musical entertainment; a draw for cash prizes, and a fabulous opportunity to support numerous local charities, including Kemptville District Hospital, Beth Donovan Hospice, Ryan’s Well Foundation, Kemptville District Home Support, Scouts Canada, Jumpstart, and Victory Time Therapeutic Riding.

Just imagine: coming out and enjoying a wonderful brunch at a reasonable price allows you and your family to help so many worthwhile causes all in the course (pardon the pun!) of a single meal! How easy could it be!

Advance tickets are available at the Scotiabank, 300 Colonade Dr., Kemptville, where all revenue from tickets sold will be matched by the Bank as an act of solidarity in support of this community event.

An event like this cannot be put on without large-scale involvement of the community itself. Involving well over one hundred volunteers, the Sweetheart Brunch is all about the community helping the community. The very fact that this has been a successful occasion for twenty years speaks volumes about the dedication of the volunteers, the generosity of the people of North Grenville, and the needs that still exist around us in our neighbours and friends. As North Grenville grows in population and becomes ever-busier and prosperous, it is good to remember that there are many among us who, now and in the future, still need our love and support. And we will not let them down, as the Sweetheart Brunch shows, year after year.

Come join us at the North Grenville Community Sweetheart Brunch on February 11, and have a great time doing a great thing. For more information, contact Lynne Clifford-Ward of the North Grenville Community Sweetheart Brunch Committee 2018, at [email protected].
