Suggested donation: $10 per adult; no charge for children accompanied by adults.

RSVPs are requested (but not required). To add your name to the guest list, please  send an email to Slow Food Seacoast with “RSVP for the 50-Mile Thanksgiving” in the subject line. (Although RSVPs are not required, if the number of attendees exceeds the room’s capacity, people on the guest list will have priority seating.)

Volunteers are needed for the following tasks:
• Setup (3:00 – 5:00 pm; set up tables and chairs, decorate)
• Service (5:00 – 7:00 pm; organize and replenish potluck dishes, bus tables)
• Cleanup (7:00 – 9:00 pm, approximately; wash dishes, put away tables and chairs).

To add your name to the volunteer list, please  send an email to Slow Food Seacoast with “I want to volunteer” in the subject line.
