BCC Attend Bridal Show at Memorial Center

Brockville, March 24, 2013 - If managing the food service for the 1000 Islands Mixed Bonspiel at the BCC wasn't enough during the weekend, Emily found time to "man" a booth at the Bridal Show held at the Brockville Memorial Center Sunday March 24th. And that's Jack behind the camera in case you can't see him.
Set-up was at 11:00 AM and the bridal show ran from 12:00 noon to 4:00 PM. It was well attended and Emily came away with a good number of leads. The Brockville Country Club hosts many wedding receptions each year given its unequaled setting and fine service.

Murderer Has Been Identified!!

Last evening (March 1st) at the Brockville Counrty Club was the scene of the Brockville Theatre Guild's comic dinner theatre murder mystery THEATRE OF HORRORS. With the BCC's 3-course meal overlaid with 3 murder mystery scenes, it was a fun and entertaining evening. With two dead, dinner participants had to fill out a ballot guessing as to who the murderer was. Only a few got the right answer, as all the Theatre Guild actors certainly played their parts well.
Next Friday, March 8th, 2013 is another great evening of dining and entertainment. Cliff Edwards returns with a new show called "Country Gold" (see below). Come join the fun! Tickets still available. Call Christianne at 613 342-3155 Ext 4 for reservations.
