The Coupeville Lions Club is continuing an old tradition Sept. 7 at noon in Town Park with a native salmon barbecue.
The sockeye salmon filets will be prepared by Rosie James and Bill Bailey of the Samish Tribe over an alderwood fire. The salmon will be accompanied with cole slaw, baked beans, garlic bread, and a mint patty, plus samples of Indian fry bread. Coffee and lemonade will also be served.
Serving will start at noon and conclude at 1:30 p.m. Only 200 tickets will be available and the cost is $12 each. Tickets may be purchased at Coupeville’s Town Hall or by will phone. Call 678-6480 and leave a message including your name, phone number and number of tickets you wish to purchase. They will be held at the “will call window” at the kitchen shelter in the park where payment can be made and tickets picked up starting at 11 a.m. Any remaining tickets will go on sale that morning at 11:30 a.m. For more information, call Lion Bob Johnson at 678-6480.
The town of Coupeville will sponsor the last Concert on the Cove for the season in the bandstand beginning at 2 p.m. The popular An-O-Chords of Anacortes will perform their music free of charge for audiences of all ages.
“Make this a special end of summer day for the whole family with fine food and great music,” said Johnson, salmon barbecue chair for the Lions Club.
