Shoreham’s Platt Library to host concert and maple contest Feb. 10

SHOREHAM — For the sixth year, Shoreham’s Friends of the Platt Memorial Library will host a benefit concert and maple dessert contest on Saturday, Feb. 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Platt Memorial Library.
Music will be performed by Brandon’s Nelson Bandella. Ethan and Emily Nelson form the core of the group. Accompanied by banjo powerhouse John Farnsworth and Andrew Flynn on guitar and vocals, this group 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. There will also be a  fundraising raffle. Attendees are asked to just bring their appetites and plenty of cash for voting. Platt Memorial Library is located at 297 Main Street in Shoreham.
It’s a great opportunity for cooks to show off their 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 plattlib.org. For more information contact the library at 802-897-2647 or [email protected], or by contacting Carol Causton at 802-897-2747, [email protected], or Judy Stevens at 802-897-7031, [email protected].
