Thrifty Foods is hosting a barbecue in support of the Tour de Rock today, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the front entrance.
Oceanside RCMP rider Constable Rochelle Carr will be training on her stationary bike and Auxiliary Officer Bill Peppy will work the grill. Thrifty invites the public to come out for lunch by donation, with all proceeds going to the tour, and a chance to meet the riders in person.
The Tour de Rock is a 1,000 km cycle down the length of the Island in September, raising funds for The Canadian Cancer Society with a focus on children.
