The evening of November 13th 2013 was a dark night and the winds were blowing hard with its breath hinting strongly of the winter season yet to come.  Wind Warriors gathered at the Silverdale Community Hall for the Mothers Against Wind Turbines third fund raising supper for a chili cook off.  The entries for the competition were dominated by the men of MAWT.   Sweet, hot and spicy and in the kitchen.  The stage was set for the competition to begin for the coveted Golden Spoon award for the best chili.

Laughs, smiles and a strong sense of community Wind Warriors gathered and strengthen their resolve to battle the harms and imposition of the Wind developments.  The desert table was filled with all kinds of amazing homemade  baking and the yummy offerings were quickly sampled and devoured by all the dinners.   

The evening allowed another opportunity to honour and celebrate the life of Patricia Anne Vaughan, an amazing woman  whose death has taken her far too soon, from her 12 year old son and extended family  The evenings raffle earnings were donated to her family in memory of her strength and spirit Just a few short weeks ago, the beef from Patricia’s farm was an important part of the first Spaghetti supper held and even though she was not able to attend it gave her a chance to continue the battle against the Wind turbines on her on terms

After much eating and socializing the winner of the Mothers Against Wind Turbines for the Golden Spoon was announced.   Joe Correia (senior) was declared the best hottie as his chili was declared the tastiest. The next  MAWT fundraising  and last supper for 2013 will be on November 27th.  Hope you can save the date and to see you there.

Mothers Against Wind Turbines Oktoberfest Dinner

Mothers Against Wind Turbines held their second of a series of fund raising dinners at the Silverdale Community Hall in St. Anne.  Oktoberfest styled home-cooking was on the menu and the hall was packed once again.  Wind Warriors from all across Niagara, West Lincoln, Wainfleet , Haldimand and beyond gathered for an amazing meal, a few laughs and community.  It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of so many volunteers.  Thank you.

MAWT is planning another two suppers for November, so the opportunity will still be available to come out for a fun filled evening and a great home cooked meal.  Join us in Uniting the Fight in the battle against Wind development in our communities against our Consent.
