Concert, dessert contest to benefit Shoreham's Platt Library
SHOREHAM — Shoreham’s Friends of the Platt Memorial Library will host its fourth annual Benefit Concert and Maple Dessert Contest on Saturday, Feb. 6, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Music will be performed by Nelson Bandella. Brother and sister duo Ethan and Emily Nelson of Brandon will rock the library with their own special brand of folky Americana.
A maple dessert contest and tasting will be held in conjunction with the concert. Local cooks are invited to submit their favorite maple dessert (which must be made with Vermont maple syrup) to share with the public. The crowd will sample the desserts and “vote” for their favorites by making cash donations into the respective ballot boxes for each dessert item.
All cash “votes” will benefit the Friends of the Platt Memorial Library’s efforts to fund further renovations of the historic building. The creator of the most popular item will win the coveted Golden Sap Bucket trophy, as well as a good share of bragging rights.
The family-friendly event will offer free admission. A fundraising raffle will be held. Attendees are asked to bring their appetites and plenty of cash for voting. The event will be held at the library, 297 Main St., Shoreham.
Entries must include Vermont maple syrup and a recipe card. Entry forms are available at the library or at www.plattlib.org. For more information contact the library at 897-2647 or [email protected]. Or contact Carol Causton at 897-2747 or [email protected], or Cora Waag at 897-2385 or [email protected].
