Playing detective at Rotary show

Rotary murder mystery in Parksville draws a full house Saturday night

Ian Dewar who played detective I. B. Clueless confirms that hotel cleaner Patricia Johnson

The crowd was dressed to kill but there was only one murderer in the house Saturday night and after several clues and plenty of dramatics, the Pink Lace Diamond Mystery was eventually solved.

The Rotary Club of Parksville AM presented their first annual murder mystery dinner on January 28 at Parksville’s Beach Club Resort.

A 1940s theme depicting the bygone era of the hard-boiled detective genre was the setting for the fundraiser which brought out quite a few of the community’s wanna-be detectives.

Many of the guests dressed in period costume as they attempt to flush out the unsub. Rotary spokesperson Sandy Herle said all funds raised from the event will stay in Parksville and a portion will be directed toward programs designed to support youth at risk and other worthwhile local Rotary projects.

Murder as well as a scrumptious meal were served up as the guests attempted to figure out who was up to no good.   While enjoying the dinner the attendees were handed clues as they participated in a fun-filled evening of theatre and camaraderie with like-minded sleuths. In the end, Sherry Lee figured out who the diabolical perpetrator was and won a one night stay at the Beach Club.

The Rotary Club of Parksville AM hopes the event will become an annual fundraising event.
