Bicentennial Community Supper
St. Michael Parish in Augusta will offer the community a taste of Italy during a special supper that aims to celebrate Maine’s bicentennial while raising money for an important cause at the same time.
A special pasta dinner will be held in the hall of St. Augustine Church, located on 75 Northern Avenue in Augusta, on Saturday, March 14, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend. Admission is free but freewill donations will be accepted to benefit the area’s Meals on Wheels program.
Operating from 1 Weston Court in Augusta, the Meals on Wheels program provides delicious, nutritionally balanced meals for homebound individuals 60 years of age or older and to persons with a disability who are unable to prepare a meal due to physical or mental limitations, or who have no one to prepare a meal for them.
The dinner will include pasta with the choice of Bolognese, marinara, and alfredo sauces. Salad, garlic bread, desserts, and beverages will also be offered.
In addition to raising funds for Meals on Wheels, the event also serves to commemorate Maine’s bicentennial. Among the events being planned by the Maine Bicentennial Commission is a day to honor the role of community suppers throughout our state’s history. A Bicentennial Commission Community Dinner will be held on March 15. Other bicentennial events slated for the year include a State of Maine Parade in Auburn and Lewiston on May 16 and a cultural weekend on October 9-12.
