Mayor ‘serves’ citizens at pub
Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart will be pouring beers and mixing cocktails tomorrow (Thursday) at the John B Neighbourhood Pub as part of an effort to raise money for the Coquitlam Public Library’s bookmobile.
With rising gas prices, the Book Bus, which brings library materials to people who are unable to travel, has become increasingly expensive to operate.
The fundraiser has been organized to help offset some of the fuel costs while highlighting the many features of the library, according to event organizer, Owen Coomer.
All gratuities and proceeds from a 50/50 draw organized by Coun. Linda Reimer will go toward the Book Bus.
The event takes place June 30, between 6 and 9 p.m. at the John B and Stewart will be working at the bar between 6 and 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $15 and include a beverage and a burger.
