snow days!

Winter has descended upon us full force in its first week! With blizzard conditions which pretty much shut down the whole state on Monday, our community meal was no exception! As a reminder to all, Everybody Eats' cancellation policy follows the lead of the Ellsworth school system: if RSU 24 is closed, Everybody Eats is as well. Tune to local TV channels 2, 5 or 7 to be sure.
Now let's hope for no more snowy Monday's!

Thanks Everyone for a Memorable FLASH Fun-Raiser Concert

We can’t believe it’s been two weeks since we had our marvelous ‘fun-raiser’ concert by FLASH In the Pans down at the Ellsworth waterfront Harbor Park! What a great location for such a fun concert like this!

Folks started arriving with their lawn chairs and smiles around 6:30 in order to steak out their spot on the grass carpeted area. The band began their infectious lively melodies at 7:30 and the crowd responded with much applause and a whole lot of dancing. Needless to say, everyone loved it!

From the concession area, one could smell the freshly popped-corn which wafted through the air. There was also a nice assortment of homemade goods for sale along with glow necklaces and water. There was even a kiosk selling crystals and things.

It was easy to see that everyone was having a GREAT time and didn't want the evening to end!

We are thrilled that our 1st event was such a success and now we have something to build upon! We know that next year will be even better!

This concert generated more than $1000 after expenses, which will help us, provide about 800 more meals!!!

We want to thank everyone who support us and contributed to make this evening a memorable one!

mark your calendars!

Please join us on Labor Day for a benefit concert by Blue Hill, ME based steel drum band Flash! In The Pans. The concert will take place at Ellsworth Harbor Park (public boat launch) at 7:30pm, Monday, Sept. 6th. This will be a great way to mark the end of summer, and an even better way to raise some funds for Ellsworth's only 'soup kitchen'! Plenty of free parking - including handicapped - and refreshments will be available. See you there!

Many thanks to St. Saviour's Episcopal Church in Bar Harbor for sponsoring our April 5th meal. We served over 100 people and no one went away hungry! From soup to salad to desserts, all was made possible by our very enthusiastic volunteer staff and this generous donation from our neighbors in Bar Harbor.
A very special thank you to the incredibly creative Nancy D., who made this beautiful poster. It now resides proudly at St. Saviour's Church, for all to enjoy!

Just a reminder that the EE Board Meetings are now happening on the third Monday of the month, instead of the third Tuesday. Time and place has not changed - they still take place at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church at 4pm. The meeting are open to the public and those with fresh ideas and input are encouraged to attend!
