The Rimbey Municipal Library is inviting residents to experience some fine dining and, in the process, help the library raise much-needed dollars for its building fund.

A steak and lobster, chicken and ribs dinner will be catered by Bob Ronnie at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre on May 9. Cocktails are at 5:30 and dinner is at 6:30 p.m.

All proceeds will go towards the library’s building fund, said librarian Jean Keetch.

“We need to expand, how that’s going to look we’re not sure, but we need some more cash.”

As well as a delicious meal and cash bar, the evening will include games of chance and a live and silent auction.

Keech said the library-sponsored entertainment including St. James Gate and the Popowichs earlier this year to provide entertainment for the community.

“If we made money that was good, but our primary goal was to provide entertainment. This event is to make money. We really need people to open their wallets.”

Tickets for the event may be purchased at the library.
