Save the Date: YARMOUTH READS 2017 Wrap-Up

Mark your calendars now, for the wrap-up and community discussion at the Lorusso Lodge at Flax Pond, off Whites Path in South Yarmouth on Sunday afternoon, April 30. We’ll talk about war rations, the food that might have been available to the island captives, and just how many varieties of potato peel pie there are in the world…there will be a buffet, with a sampling of delicious pork and other “picnic” foods. The cost for the buffet is $5, if you reserve your seat before April 21; $10.00 for reservations after April 21. Proceeds will help defray expenses of the variety of YARMOUTH READS programs. Register at the Library’s website, at the Calendar of Events or call the Library at 508-760-4820.
