Over 60 different beers and food too? Yes, please!
If beer is your beverage bring your palate on a search for the perfect pint Thursday, May 9, 2013 with the Rotary Club of Port Moody. With over 60 different beers being poured at the Port Moody City Hall Galleria I believe you’ll be able to find that perfect pint. And even if you don’t, it’ll be fun trying!
So. Much. Beer.
Seventeen different brewers are going to be on site with dozens and dozens of different beers for you to try in the course of the evening. Based on previous personal experience with this event, pacing yourself is imperative. Five partners are also providing food this year including the St. James’s Well, Thrifty Foods, Onyx Steakhouse, Pasta Polo and the Burrard Public House. The festivities go from 6:00pm until 9:00pm, and all that beer and food is served on a backdrop of jazz band entertainment.
Make a Difference with Rotary
The Port Moody Rotary Club has been making a difference locally and internationally as a part of the greater Rotary International for a number of years. With a network of chapters in virtually every country of the world Rotary has the connections accomplish many things locally and globally. Years ago the Port Moody Rotary ‘adopted’ the Seniors at Eagle Ridge Manor and have spent countless hours there volunteering with residents, decorating for the holidays and generally supporting our elder population.
On a continuing basis, Rotary has also raised money to send local kids to summer camps. Starting a few years ago with $19,000 to send 48 kids to camp and continuing from there to send more and more kids every year since. Another important local initiative is the Rotary support of the Hannah House-InnerVisions Society which provides support for those recovering from addictions (www.innervisionsrecovery.com).
Internationally, Rotary continues to support the children of South Africa with functional used medical equipment and used school and educational supplies from the TriCities area allowing children to sit at desks instead of on the ground. Also, the Port Moody Rotary connects with local Rotary clubs in South Africa to provide support for programs to help with healthcare and education for children that have lost parents to HIV and AIDS.
