The meal will showcase locally sourced hearty stews, chowders, bread, cider, and homemade desserts, with an emphasis on apple and pumpkin pies.

“Interest in our wholesome local harvest dinners in Lincoln County has grown each year, and for good reason,” said Valarie Johnson. “Each one is a celebration of what local farmers produce, the best recipes of our volunteer cooks, and great company in historic community gathering places. What could be better?”

Attendees may pay at the door or reserve a space through the secure portal at http://lincolncountydemocrats.com/harvest Admission is a $20 donation per person over the age of 10. All ages are welcome. For attendees who would like to offer additional support for the event and LCDC efforts, there is an opportunity to be a member of the host committee for $50 which includes one admission fee and recognition at the event.

For more information, to offer a dish or helping hands, or to become a member of the host committee, please contact Valarie Johnson at 207-549-3358 or ValarieSmithJohnson@gmail.com

The LCDC uses the money they raise through this and other fundraising initiatives to support their local efforts in Lincoln County. Its grassroots mission is to organize volunteers and communicate with voters in support of candidates who believe in the Democratic ideals and principles of government by, of, and for all the people.
