Pasta Dinner & Bluegrass Music At NUMC, Saturday
The next Saturday Pasta Dinner at Newtown United Methodist Church will take place on March 3 in the churchâs fellowship hall, 92 Church Hill Road in Sandy Hook.
The public is cordially invited to join church members for what has become an evening of fellowship and community spirit. This weekendâs event, according to longtime co-organizer Martha Millett, will be the 22nd birthday for the NUMC Pasta Dinners.
Dinner is served from 5 to 7:30 pm with donation being $9, $8 for seniors, and $3.50 for children. 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 Newtownâs 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 is $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.
In order to avoid a collision with the Easter holiday next month, the church has decided to host a second NUMC Pasta Dinner and Coffee House this month. The second event will take place on Saturday, March 31, following the same time schedule and dinner/admission charges.
