Social Ministry Committee invites you to its 2nd Annual Progressive Dinner
Saturday, October 20 6:00 p.m.
Tickets are still Available
Menu: A delicious menu of fall foods from local sources: Soup and Salad, Pulled Pork, Mac and Cheese, Roasted Veggies, Applesauce, and Desserts
Speaker: Mrs. Ginger Myers, University of Maryland Agricultural Extension Agent, will lead us in a conversation, “Supporting Locally Grown Food in the Chesapeake Foodshed and Why It Matters.” We eat every day and pretty much take for granted that there will be safe, abundant food in our grocery stores and restaurants. But, should we consider how our food was produced? Does it matter who produced it or where it came from? Are we really food secure? Does where you plant your food dollars really make a difference in our local economy? Are you eating a third-hand tomato? Let’s discuss answers to those questions and how they relate to our stewardship of the earth, feeding our calorie- deficient brothers and sisters, and re-connecting with our culinary heritage.
Special Music: Soloist Abby Lewis will be accompanied by Diane Jones (Abby was one of the lovely performers at Grace’s Anniversary Banquet last fall).
Bake Sale: The proceeds will be donated to ELCA Domestic Disaster Relief
Cost: We will receive a free will offering to help cover the cost of the meal. A suggested amount is $8-10 per adult and $3-5 per child. Adults and children are asked to obtain a ticket so we will know how many people will be attending. Sign the RCR card to reserve your ticket or stop by the table in the Upper Gathering Space.
Good food, beautiful music, lots of laughter, provocative thoughts, prizes, and lots of fun!
All ages are welcome!
Give yourself the gift of an evening out! We’d love to enjoy the evening with YOU!
