Fun Fundraiser for Local Soup Kitchen (with great food and music!)

We just received this email, originally written by Hwei-ling Greeney (the town's incredibly active selectoboard member!), from one of our readers. A great cause, a great dinner, and they have even organized a concert! A fundraiser at its finest! We plan on attending!

"The question of eat or heat this winter has been such a dilemma in the minds of many guests of Not Bread Alone. I hope you will join me for the 2nd Annual Soup & Song event to raise funds for the new Wednesday meal program that we began last November. The new program, which has been in the works for over a year, fills an essential need in the community.

Until now, there has been NO hot meal served anywhere in the Amherst area
on Wednesday evening. We are glad that we are now able to fill this hole, as well as the stomachs of our hungry Wednesday evening guests. Your presence at the Soup & Song benefit event this Saturday, February 9, 2008 at the First Congregational Church of Amherst will be so cherished.

An All You Can Eat dinner with homemade cornbread and five varieties of
delicious and wholesome soup --- chili,vegetarian chili, clam chowder, spicy blackeye pea soup, and curry lentil soup --will begin at 5:00 PM.

Following dinner, Sarah Pirtle – the Valley’s best
folk singer will begin the benefit concert at 7:00 PM.

The cost of the concert which includes the meal is very reasonable: $5
for children and $10 for adults in advance.

Tickets can be purchased at A. J. Hastings or Food for Thought Bookstore.

Hope to see you this Saturday at 5:00 for dinner and
7:00 for concert at First Congregational Church of Amherst, 165
Main Street, Amherst (next door to the Black Sheep Café).

The snow date is Sunday, February 10."
