Grand River Cruise – August 3, 2022

Lunch Cruise on the Beautiful Grand River

Once again we invite our Club Members and their guests to join us on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 for an outing with Grand River Cruises. Your $40 per person fee will include the cruise, entertainment and lunch, but this is a “drive yourself event”, so plan accordingly. Note: If you were leaving from the Rexdale office it would take only 1 hour to get to Caledonia.

Contact Mel Doig, as noted below, by July 13 to sign-up for the event. Act fast as we last did this in 2016 and it was a complete sell-out !

Your Day’s Schedule:
10:45-11:15 a.m. – Complimentary coffee & muffin, shopping in Dockside Marketplace
11:30 a.m. – Live Music Show featuring the Blazing Fiddles in auditorium
12:30 – Depart on a 2-1/2 hour cruise with 3-course lunch
3:00 – Return to dock.
3:15 – 3:45 – Dockside Marketplace open

Detailed directions, as well as information about the cruise can be viewed on the
website https://www.grandrivercruises.ca/location.

Dining Cruise Menu:
● Complimentary refreshment from our Dockside Cafe on arrival
● Snack & dip platter for table upon boarding
● Fresh-baked bread
● Mixed greens salad with choice of dressing
● Choice of: Slow-cooked roast beef or baked chicken breast or vegetarian chili (protein choices must be pre-ordered)
● Potatoes and vegetables
● Choice of house-made dessert
● Tea, coffee, soft drink
● Bar service is available on board offering soft drinks, beer & wine.

Due to the uncertainty of how many members are ready for a group excursion so soon after
the pandemic, your Club Executive has decided not to provide a bus for this outing, for fear
that it might not be very full. Therefore it will be a “drive yourself event”. There will be plenty
of time to re-connect and socialise with friends prior to, and during the cruise. Some may
wish to “car pool” with friends. Mel would be happy to try to match up riders with drivers if you
send him your approximate location and the number of passengers.

Cruise date: August 3, 2022
Cost: $40.00 per person, includes HST and gratuity
Each member may bring 1 guest at the same price. As this is a Club subsidised event, additional guests cannot be accommodated.
