Tonasket Kiwanis Groundhog Dinner this Saturday

TONASKET – The 29th Annual Tonasket Kiwanis Club Groundhog Dinner will be this Saturday, Feb. 2 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Tonasket High School Commons.

The event began in the church in Ellisforde but they didn’t have enough space or people to put it on so the Tonasket Kiwanis took it over in 1984 and it’s grown dramatically ever since, according to Herb Wandler, a Tonasket Kiwanian.

The dinner will consist of sausage, potatoes, vegetables, coleslaw, a beverage and dessert. All funds will go toward funding the Kiwanis Youth services. The organization sponsors the boy scouts and helps support things like grade school field trips. They also give out scholarships.

The Kiwanians prepare the sausage according to an old German recipe. Wandler said they serve between 300 and 400 people each year and any left over sausage is sold in bulk packages.

Tickets will cost $9.50 for adults and children 13-years-old and over, $4.50 for children 12-years-old and younger and pre-school children will be admitted free of charge.
