There will be a Community Pasta Supper to support the MidCoast Hunger Prevention Program TODAY -Martin Luther King Day – Jan. 16 from 5 to 7 PM at Pilgrim House, 9 Cleaveland Street, Brunswick near First Parish Church. The public is invited to bring donations of non-perishable items or “Pay-As-You-Like” with suggested $5 contributions from adults. Free child care will be available at this family friendly event. All are welcome to this first community benefit supper, hosted by the Brunswick Democratic Town Committee, commemorating Martin Luther King's call to community service.
Contributing to our community's common good is a fitting celebration of Martin Luther King's example, and a simple recognition that we are all connected. King regarded the struggle for civil rights as part of a broader struggle to address poverty and economic injustice, timely concerns as we begin 2012. Our community is challenged today to address the problem of hunger, and the Brunswick Democrats want to help. This event is endorsed by NAACP-Portland, and President/Director Rachel Talbot Ross will offer brief remarks.
