Enjoy a delicious roast beef and perogies dinner and discover a little known fact about the City of Brandon.  Daly House Museum’s Annual Dinner will be held at the Ukrainian Reading Association Hall at 1005 Assiniboine Avenue (10th Street North) on Thursday, March 13. Dinner will be at 6 PM followed by a special presentation by Shaun Cameron featuring the film “End of the Line: The Brandon Railway Company.” After the film Shaun and Bob Booth will answer questions about Brandon’s old streetcar system. Audience members are invited to share their memories as well.

During dinner you will have a chance to play our trivia game and take part in a 50-50 draw. All proceeds will go towards Museum projects such as special exhibits. As members, you are cordially invited to stay after the
presentation for our Annual General Meeting. If you’ve attended dinner at the Hall before, you know that the food is exceptional – traditional home cooking. Tickets are only $22.50 and must be purchased in advance from the Museum.

If you haven’t already got your tickets to this event, just think about those mouthwatering perogies.   When the Museum is closed on Sunday and Monday, you can still buy tickets by calling Trish at 204-727-3156.

See you on Thursday!
