EmptyBowls has been a fundraiser for several years at Messalonskee High School. The purpose of this project is to raise money for food pantries in our communities. It is also about raising awareness that many people are struggling to provide food for their families.
This year, the “Empty Bowls” will be filled Friday, March 8, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Messalonskee High School cafeteria.
The cost is $10 for adults and $8 for senior citizens and students.
Students in pottery classes, faculty members, and people in the community have been
crafting ceramic bowls under the direction of ceramics teacher Sherrie Damon, to be sold as part of the dinner. The bowls will be on display for diners to choose and take
home after their meal as a reminder of the event and what it represents.
The menu will include homemade soups, salads, rolls, drinks, and desserts. We’ll also
have a raffle and prizes to give away.
Diners can complete the evening by attending “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” performed by the MHS Players. The show starts at 7 p.m.
