Don’t miss “Beers and a Brat” this Saturday night, Oct. 19, at The Shot Glass. The Orofino Rotary Club will be there from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. serving up a German Bratwurst with sauerkraut, choice of gourmet mustard and 2 German beers all for $10.00.
The brats are marinated in Rotarian Annie Lozar’s secret beer recipe for a real German taste. They go great with the autumn inspired Elysian’s Night Owl and Sam Adams’ Oktoberfest Lager on tap.
Accordionist Richard Whitten will keep things hopping with his traditional German beer songs and The Shot Glass barmen in lederhosen are not to be missed. The front patio and back beer garden will be covered and heaters available in case the weather is chilly.
Proceeds from the event will go to cover Rotary’s material costs for installing a bridge to mark the entrance to the century-old cemetery at State Hospital North where 595 people were buried between 1906 and 1950. The entrance sign is being donated by GTT Fabrications, owned by Rotarian Jim O’Leary and his sons.
“The State Hospital North Cemetery Committee is working on a plan that will eventually include plaques with the names and dates of everyone buried there,” said committee member, and Rotarian, Lynn MacEachern. “The Orofino Rotary Club is proud to help honor these forgotten dead by installing the new fence across the front of the property and building a proper entrance as part of our community dirty-hands projects,“ MacEachern added
Tickets for the Oct. 19 event are available at The Shot Glass, Empire Reality, Camas Financial Services and at the door.
