The Exceptional Lunch Ladies of Carleton Place – Full Deck

The Exceptional Lunch Ladies of Carleton Place – Full Deck



Yesterday I finally was able to attend what I have been hearing so much about. Chances are you might not have heard of it. So when I experience great stuff going on in our area I am going to share.

FuLL DECK (Fundraising Lunch Ladies with Delightful Entertainment, Cooking & Knowledge)  are actually a duo.  Leigh Gibson and Cynthia Ferrier host luncheons for charities in Lanark County once a month at 30 Bennett Street in Carleton Place. The one I went to today raised money for Open Doors of Lanark County.

This morning I got up and FuLL DECK had sent everyone out a notice they had made, a grand total of $400 for Open Doors yesterday with 45 folks enjoying lunch and participating in the raffles. How great is that?

It was a painless joyous event consisting of: eating, chatting, 50/50 draw and door prizes. Did I mention door prizes? Did I mention the good food? Did I mention dessert? They have it all and the luncheon costs $5.00, and if you want to join in all the draws that’s extra. Even if you think you won’t know anyone– trust me you will. Like these two..:)

Next one is on Tuesday, April 16 from 12-1 in the Conference Room at 30 Bennett Street. Make sure you RSVP to reserve your space and lunch by Wednesday, April 10th, 2019 at 12 noon. Or you can email Leigh or Cynthia at
In April they will be raising money for the Back to School Program administered by Connections. See you there!!!
