You Don’t Have to Speak Italian…

Where’s your piece?

You don’t have to speak Italian to appreciate Italian Food and the second annual Italian Buffet Supper sponsored by volunteers from the Penquis Smart Starts for Students Program and Valley Grange. We packed the house last year and expect to do so again! You also don’t have to speak Italian to be part of the fun and accomplishment that goes along with working together for a worthy cause. Because we expect this year’s event to be even bigger than last year, we’re asking our communities for some help.

Like to cook?

Dishes we need include Lasagna, Chicken Cacciatore, Fish Fillets Italiano, Cheese Pizza, Pepperoni Pizza, and Minestrone Soup. Prepared dishes will need to arrive at the Valley Grange Hall the afternoon of the dinner (Saturday, July 21st).  Please help us with planning by calling Sheree @ 974-2440 or emailing  before July 17th and letting her know your intentions.

Like to shop?

Items we need to prepare this feast include: Red Onions, Red Peppers, Yellow Peppers, Green Peppers, Leaf Lettuce, Iceburg Lettuce, Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes, Pickling Cucumbers, Shredded Carrots, Cottage Cheese, Real Bacon Bits, Croutons, Black & Green Olives, Dill & Sweet Pickles, Salad Dressings, Sliced Pepperoni, Block Cheese, Snack Crackers, Fresh Strawberries, Fresh Blueberries, Fresh Raspberries, and Grape Juice. Shopping will need to be completed and donations received by July 17 with items delivered to the Penquis Office at 50 North Street in Dover Foxcroft.

Like to work?

We need helpers to set up, serve or clean up… call Sheree @ 974-2440 or email to volunteer. If you can help with publicity we have a Italian Buffet Supper Flyer and post in your office or business… or anywhere there are people who like to eat! If you need any other publicity resources, email and we’ll try to help!
