Save the Date: YARMOUTH READS 2017 Wrap-Up

Mark your calendars now, for the wrap-up and community discussion to be held 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 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, with proceeds going to help defray expenses of the variety of YARMOUTH READS programs in 2017. Register at the Library’s website, at the Calendar of Events.
