Mexican lunch fundraiser upcoming

  • Apr. 20, 2005 4:00 p.m.

Friends of the Haida Gwaii museum will be munching a Mexican lunch to the
haunting strains of the Macarena Saturday April 30 at the Skidegate
community hall. The menu is snappy and features a little known local delicacy-
the fried bread taco plus chili served in tortilla bowls and quesadillas as well as
dessert.
To spice up the event further, there’ll be three large pinatas hanging
ready for a poke. One will hold $100 in loonies. At $5 a poke, one lucky
person will be showered with coins. And the other two pinatas? They’ll be filled
with surprises. Tickets are $15 and lunch is between 11:30 and 2:00pm.
Museum memberships will be on sale also for those who would like to show
their support. Orders will be taken for copies of the “Haida Gwaii/
Queen Charlotte Islands Trail hikes and Beach Walks” by Fern Henderson,
recently revised by the Museum and being reprinted.
The event is a fundraiser for the museum to help recover
gift shop and entrance admission revenues lost due to closures caused by the construction. Also ahead, a salmon barbecue this summer and a sushi dinner in the fall. The museum will reopen for the summer season and will be offering tours of the poles for visitors.
