October 17, 2017  Kickin’ Back Alpaca Ranch Tour                                        11:00 am

Our October event will be a tour of “The Kickin’ Back Alpaca Ranch” located at 734762 West Back Line, RR No. 7 Markdale Ont.  This is a very hands-on adventure where you can walk with the Alpacas as they are halter trained.  Towards the end of the tour there is a fully stock store featuring a large variety of Alpaca wool clothing and household items.  The tour will start at 11:00 am, so we need to gather a few minutes before it begins. The cost of the tour is $5.00 per person.We will gather for lunch at “Steven’s Bar-BQ Restaurant”, located on Highway ten (10) just east of Markdale at approximately 12:30 pm.  There will be directions and a map provided on the back of the event flyer at the Social Table.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact Lee at 705 429 5541 or email at

December 5, 2017 CHRISTMAS LUNCH AT THE ROCKDELL                   11:30 am

Our December event is our annual Christmas Lunch at “The Rockdell Steak House” located at 9386 Beachwood Rd. The Social Committee went to great lengths to ensure that our luncheon date would not conflict with other groups holding their events during the Christmas season, as was the case in previous years.

“Meat balls” will be served from 11:30 am as “hors d’oeuvres” until our sit down meal at 12:00 noon. We will enjoy a delicious turkey dinner with all the fixings followed by desert as well as tea or coffee.

There will be door prizes, a Christmas tie contest and a 50/50 draw. Adrien Robitaille will be providing live music of the festive season.

The cost is $30.00 per person. Taxes and gratuities are included. Bar service is available.

If you have any questions please contact Lee at 705 429 5541 or email at

PAYMENT FOR EVENTS: There is now a  change in policy regarding the acceptance of cash for payment to the social events. Aside from cheques, cash will be accepted and a receipt will be issued however the exact amount in cash will be required since no change will be given back.

Thank you Social Team for doing such a great job of keeping us on the go!
