The next Saturday Pasta Dinner at Newtown United Methodist Church will take place on September 6 in the church’s fellowship hall, 92 Church Hill Road in Sandy Hook. It is the first dinner of the 2014-15 season, which marks 25 years of food and community fellowship.
The public is cordially invited to join church members for dinner, which is served from 5 to 7:30 pm
Requested donation is up just slightly this year, with adult dinners $10, and $9 for seniors. Children’s dinners remain $3.50. Gift certificates are available.
Dinner includes fruit cup, salad with choice of dressings, pasta with choice of sauces (meatless, mild, or spicy), garlic bread, and an array of homemade desserts.
Dinner is followed at 7:45 pm by a performance of bluegrass, country, and folk music played by Newtown’s own Roger Sprung & Friends. Mr Sprung, a longtime resident of Sandy Hook, is a world champion banjo player who has been recognized as a pioneer of bluegrass music by The International Bluegrass Music Museum.
The entertainment donation remains $4 with dinner or $5 without. This covers all coffee, soft drinks, and snacks served during the evening from 7:45 to 10:30 pm.
Entry to fellowship hall is through the lower parking lot, behind the building, and plenty of parking is available. Call 203-426-9998 for additional information.
