Fall Harvest Supper

We know, we know… you really don’t want to start thinking about fall… but we just couldn’t wait to tell you: Valley Grange and Penquis are teaming up for another great supper with a great cause! We had too much fun and success with the Italian Buffet not to do something again. As one of the Penquis Volunteers said when we settled on a date, “Yippie Skippie!”

Mark your calendar and save the date: Saturday, October 22nd. We’ll be serving from 5 PM until 7 PM (or until the food runs out).

And wait until you see the menu… Sheree Brown and her volunteers are planning to top the last “Italian Buffet” and are hoping to feature some “locavore” products from farms and gardens in the area with a traditional harvest feast. (Farmers and gardeners are invited to gain some reconition by donating needed items. An email to grange@boomsmaonline.com or sabrown@penquis.org will get you a list of opportunities.)

Once again, we’re offering this dinner at a price that can’t be beat even by the fast food joints! You can dine fine for a minimum donation of $6 for adults, $3 for kids 5-12 and under five eat free!

And if you’re not ready to think about fall, you surely won’t want to think about the fact that the dinner will benefit the Piscataquis Santa Project.  But the reality is the falling leaves will eventually turn to falling snow… and there are going to be a lot of families in the area who will need some help this year.

Yippie Skippie and Ho,Ho, Ho!

Keeping Our Communties Warm — Winter Clothing Available

Reprinted from the event page on Facebook, The location for this is right at the four corners in Abbot… and the home of Vic and Cheryl Morin. The date is Saturday, October 8th and you can come anytime after 8 AM until dusk.

This project was started by the JD Foundation to try and help our community in the cold months. We save coats, boots, warm clothing, blankets and more to donate to those in the area that needs them.These are either new or gently used items. We also have plenty of mittens, hats, etc… We do not man the tent. We only put a donation bucket out. If you can and want to donate, that is great. If you can’t donate and need things, please take them and leave with a smile. We all need things especially when we have children.

If you have a coat that you no longer need, especially for younger children, please drop them off or give us a call.

We will also have a tent with Christmas items and some brand new items that you can purchase for Christmas presents. Most items are by donation. PLEASE pass this on to all of your friends,& neighbors.
