MOFGA Penobscot County Stone Soup Social - 11 January 2014 [snow date 25 January]
at the Bangor Grange [1192 Ohio St. Bangor]. - - -

Get your vegetables chopped. No need to bring bowls or spoons as we have plenty. The soup starts with just a big pot of broth over a fire and it’s up to you to add a tasty morsel. We will have two pots of broth going; one chicken broth and one tomato stock for a minestrone vegetarian soup. You bring something to throw into one of these pots [prepped and ready to toss in]. We will also be open to folks bringing bread/crackers, desserts, appetizers or drinks [non-alcoholic]. - - -

Gather around the cauldron, doors opening at 1pm, meal to be served around 2:30
Come and enjoy this community social and warm yourself on a cold winter day with soup, and socializing. - - -

RSVP; please respond with: how many people you are bringing, what you plan to bring.

One more plug for this event.

It looks like we have about 25 RSVPs so far, so we expect a good turn out. Dont miss it.

If you are in Penobscot County; if you are interested in seeing some events in this local area; then we would love to see you.

It happened!

The Maine weather was against us; the rain poured; the roads were iced. Many communities had it much worse than others. If you did not make it, we understand. Some of the roads were not safe.

We had 28 who had RSVP'ed, 13 showed up.

We enjoy socializing on a cold winter day with fantastic soups, homemade breads and desserts.

A special thank you goes to Rolf and Ann Staples as leaders of the Bangor Grange, for allowing us to use the Grange Hall.

Ted Quaday [Executive Director of MOFGA] was there. It was great for folks to be able to talk with him and hear his vision for our future. He is very supportive of our new chapter.

Mary Yurlina [Director of MOFGA Certification Services, LLC] was there. She is a resident of our county, and is very energized with the idea of there being a local chapter to host MOFGA events.

Attendees filled out Survey Sheets asking for ideas of future events they would like to see / host.

We have three events that we have on our calendar. As the time approaches we will be notifying all members of them.
