Food Pantry Benefit Concert

CHAMBER MUSIC CONCERT
TO BENEFIT THE
YARMOUTH COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY

Hunger in Yarmouth is REAL! But this coming Veterans Day we can all help make a
difference.

WHEN: Saturday, November 11 at 3:00pm
WHERE: First Parish Church in Yarmouth (116 Main Street)
WHO: These 5 Chamber Music Ensembles offer a beautiful blend of styles and genres:

Windswept woodwind quintet
Candelia flute quartet
Painted Trillium piano trio
Royal River mixed ensemble
High Winds flute choir

Admission is free, but there is a suggested donation of $10 to benefit the Food Pantry.

The program will also feature a brief report from the Food Pantry, how they help some of the neediest families in the area put food on their tables. They now serve approximately 90 families (230 individuals) each month.

Please mark your calendar for this delightful and unusual concert…it’s a great opportunity to support one of Yarmouth’s most worthy and beneficial organizations.

Thank You Sue Rowe!

A celebration was held at the First Parish Church on February 2nd to thank Sue Rowe for her many years of service to what is now the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.

Sue will soon step down from her managing role, and a team of volunteers is in the process of being assembled to take on the many roles she has so ably filled.

Over $1,500 worth of food was donated to the Food Pantry in her honor, and the following plaque will be hung on the wall of the Yarmouth Community Food Pantry.
