A new restaurant option will be on the menu in South Dundas in mid to late November when Morrisburg resident, Bill Dillabough opens his Pizza Hut ‘take-out’ franchise in the Pinkus Plaza.
“My target date is November 30th, earlier if possible,” says Dillabough who has 10 years experience with Pizza Hut in Cornwall.
To be located at the east end of the Pinkus Plaza, Dillabough’s franchise in Morrisburg will be a ‘take out’ only.
“I will have a full Pizza Hut menu, but there will be fewer choices in some of the items. For instance, I will have Caesar salad, but maybe not all the other choices.”
Dillabough says the take-out menu will include Pizza Huts’ popular sides and desserts, pizzas, pastas and wings.
He expects to employ up to 20 employees and positions will be available for cooks, order desk receptionists and drivers. In-house and on-line training will be provided and resumes are now being accepted.
“We will be offering delivery and take out, but there will be no dining in. We will be open seven days per week from 11 a.m. until closing.”
Pizza Hut take-out franchises are very popular in urban areas and Dillabough estimates that of the 11 Pizza Huts in Ottawa, only three or four are dine in. The take-outs are very successful he says.
“I will have all that Pizza Hutt has to offer, and will be operating on a personal and local level.”
Customers in South Dundas and surrounding area will be able to order online and through the Pizza Hut call in service, but there will also be a local number available to place orders. “You will never get a busy signal.”
The new Pizza Hut location in Morrisburg will be fitted with its specialized equipment over the next few weeks and with two ovens to be included, Dillabough says he will be able to put out 45 pizzas per oven in one hour.
This is Legion Week, and it will be a quiet one at Branch #48. It has been a busy year with the celebration of our 85th anniversary and will continue into November with the honours and awards dinner and Remembrance Day.
The last two weeks have seen bingo players number in the 70s. There is good fun and good prizes.
The meat draw on September 18 was for ground beef and was won by Edith Sypes. It is still barbecue weather.
Monday, September 19, the men’s dart league will begin, and on Tuesday the 20th mixed darts will begin.
Our Ladies Auxiliary will cater the Canadian Club on Wednesday, September 21, as the Club’s fall and winter series begins. They will also cater a country supper for the Playhouse on September 23. They still find time to play euchre. Three teams will play district euchre at Branch #297 in Cornwall in October.
Business from the general meeting on September 14 saw a donation of $1,000 going to the Terry Fox Run and $1,500 going to restoration of the mural of the old train station depicted on the wall of Giant Tiger. This restoration is expected to last for 10 years and will hopefully display the Branch #48 logo. It was reported that four bursary applications have been received to date and are being considered.
Friday, September 30, is steak night, so mark your calendar for another great meal and for good music as Fergus Entertainment will play in the pub.
Senior games in Smith’s Falls in August saw several local names appear including Jim and Judy Scott in darts, Monique Patenaude, Nancy Warner, Elise Muir, Joan Findlay in golf and Dale Swerdfeger in golf. We may be seniors, but many are still active.

Until one has loved an animal, part of the soul remains unawakened.
Media Release -Nov 21, 2011
WINCHESTER – As retailers scramble this holiday season to re-stock their shelves with holiday gifts, Canadian Blood Services is asking eligible Canadians to take one hour of their busy schedule to ensure our shelves are replenished with the gifts that will make a difference to hospital patients this season.
Between November 21 and January 2, Canadian Blood Services is asking Canadians to give the “perfect gift” this holiday season – give blood. Over 101,000 life-saving “gifts” are needed this holiday season for hospital patients from coast to coast. In Eastern Ontario, 8,856 gifts are needed to help local hospital patients.
The average Canadian will send out 50 holiday cards this season to friends and family. If that many people gave blood, one car accident victim could be saved.
Many treatments and procedures require blood products from several donors. That’s why, Canadian Blood Services is rallying communities across the country this holiday season to come together – Rally Together to Save Lives – as a way to show that collectively, blood donations can make a positive impact on someone’s life.
There are plenty of opportunities to donate blood this holiday season. Making a blood donation before or after the holidays helps ensure an adequate supply for those in need.
Please bring a friend or family member and donate either just before or after the holiday season. Call 1 888 2 DONATE (1 888 236 6283) or visit us online at www.blood.ca to book an appointment and give the perfect gift this holiday season. To help meet the continuing need for blood, donors who have an appointment in the coming weeks are urged to honour it.
There is an upcoming blood donor clinic in Winchester at the Winchester Public School located at 547 Louise Street South. The clinic will be held on November 24 from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
