Shoreham library to benefit from dessert contest and concert
SHOREHAM — Shoreham’s Friends of the Platt Memorial library will host a Benefit Concert and Maple Dessert Contest on Saturday, Feb. 11, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Music will be performed by Brandon’s Nelson Bandella. Ethan, Emily and Isaiah Nelson along with banjo powerhouse John Farnsworth 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 a spot on 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 just bring their appetites and plenty of cash for voting. The event will be held at the library, 297 Main Street, Shoreham.
Show off your talent and enter a maple dessert! Entries must include Vermont Maple Syrup and a recipe card. Entry forms are available at the library or at www.plattlib.org.
