(Trail, BC) When Jim Urquhart shut down his meat business a couple of years ago, local people who had become accustomed to the taste of his incredible sausage offerings mourned the loss of their favorite flavours. Many knew they’d never taste the like again. It seems, however, that they’ll get at least one more chance to break their fast upon Jim’s offerings.
Urquhart’s sausages rise again: Haiti Relief Campaign takes on a local flavour
Jim has decided to offer his talent and time to the people of Haiti, by resurrecting his breakfast sausages, combining them with pancakes and eggs, and welcoming local people to dine with him atTrail United Church, on Saturday, February 7, from 7am to 11:30am.
“I wanted to do something to help,” Jim says “and after procrastinating for a week, I thought this might be a way to go. I called up people at the church, at Ferraro’s, and in my family and it came together pretty quickly. So far we’ve got more helpers than eaters. Everyone wants to do something.”
For a mere $10.00 a plate local people can enjoy the double benefit of extending a helping hand to Haitians, whilst having at least one helping of Jim’s breakfast offering. A team of committed volunteers from Jim’s family and friends in the congregation at Trail United Church will put the breakfast on with him.
People attending will also have the opportunity to contribute directly to Haitian organizations through the United Church of Canada Mission and Service Fund which is funding the actions of partner organizations and churches on the ground, in Haiti.
