The 43rd annual Loafer’s Convention will be held at the Community Building in Green Ridge. It’ll be on Saturday, Feb. 22, one day only, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. There will be a silent auction at 6:00 p.m. with a chicken dinner from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The cost is $7 per dinner and the menu will include chicken, bread, coffee or tea and a choice of three sides: green beans, cole slaw, potato salad, applesauce or cottage cheese. They’ll also be serving sandwiches, hot dogs, chili dogs, chili, chips and dessert.

I got to talk with Barbara Upton with the Green Ridge Chamber of Commerce about the Loafer's Convention and how great it is.

Everyone is invited for a day of loafing and playing cards, or the game of your choice (bring your own). There will be free coffee, tea and peanuts. This event is sponsored by the Green Ridge Chamber of Commerce.

Loafingly yours,
