St. George’s Church Foundation brings back annual event
After a three-year absence due to the pandemic, the St. George’s Church Foundation annual Méchoui is back!
The classic Méchoui has been a cherished local event for over two decades., This year, it is being updated with a few small but important changes that will surely please regulars and also be a wonderful discovery for people attending for the first time. For all those who love a great BBQ, Robert Pelletier, the chef, will be tying on his apron and putting on his hat in order to offer those in attendance a delicious meal in a warm and inviting environment.
The méchoui will take place on Saturday, June 3 at 5:30 p.m. at St. George’s Hall, located at 278 heriot St. (behind the church)
This event is a fundraiser for the St. George’s Foundation, whose mission is to preserve, restore, and enhance the architectural heritage of the site. The site includes the church, the cemetery, the community hall and rectory located on Heriot Street in the heart of Drummondville.
2023 marks the 30th anniversary of the St. George’s Church Foundation. A handful of dedicated volunteers have been maintaining the site since the Foundation’s inception. This year is a particularly important one as the 13 stained-glass windows of the church are being fully restored to their original glory, thanks to a grant from the Conseil du Patrimoine religieux du Québec, the City of Drummondville, and the generosity of private donors.
All are invited to enjoy a good meal served by a talented team of volunteers, and at the same time help the non-profit organization to protect this historic church, a collective cultural asset, marked by its neo-Gothic architecture.
Although, tickets will be sold at the door the day of the event, seating is limited, so reserving in advance is advised.
