Mount Vernon Salmon Makes Great BBQ

April 25, 2017 by Mount Vernon Hotel

Dining on Salmon for a Worthy Cause

The Kiwanis Noon Club of Mount Vernon is again the proud sponsor of their yearly Kiwanis Salmon BBQ. Almost all of April is dedicated to this endeavor. From April 1 to April 23, 11am – 7pm daily, all roads lead to Mount Vernon’s scenic Hillcrest Park Lodge. Wild salmon barbecued over Alder wood, with baked potato, slaw, garlic bread, & ice cream make up the serving. Two sizes, $12 for seniors and kids and $15 for others are available. Have to buy your tickets for this tummy-filling yet worthy cause.

Proceeds will benefit the children of Skagit Valley, in particular donations go to the Mount Vernon Boys and Girls Club. The club aims to provide young people a safe place to learn and grow, ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals, life-enhancing programs, and character development experiences.

Every year the Kiwanis Club of Mount Vernon relies on countless volunteers from within the community and from neighboring Kiwanis Clubs to help run the Annual Kiwanis Salmon BBQ that runs for 3 weeks.

In time with the very popular Tulip Festival in Skagit Valley, after being done with their bloom adventures, hungry people grab a bite to eat in any of many available eateries around. Hillcrest Park Lodge is one of the most popular choices, with its nice inviting garden out back. April is the prime month for the Columbia River spring chinook when good numbers are caught.

If you’re around Mount Vernon in April, be sure to check out not just the tulips, but also be sure not to miss the annual Kiwanis Salmon BBQ. Raves speak about how tasty and so magnificently grilled were the fish that diners come back every so often within the month. Try out the salmon experience. It’s for a good cause, too.
