Catering the meals served at the refreshment tent at the fall agricultural fair was a main fundraiser for the Chilliwack Auxiliary for 54 years. They started serving meals out of a 20 by 20 foot tent in 1911.
The Auxiliary ladies will be at the 139th Annual Chilliwack Fair, August 5, 6, and 7, although not to serve meals; they will be conducting a recruitment drive. Be sure to drop by and say hello.
