SEARSPORT — Carver Memorial Library in Searsport will host its first-ever Chef’s Showcase and Garden Party fundraiser on Saturday, August 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. The Library invites everyone to sample food and beverages from local eateries, socialize, sit and enjoy music and a great atmosphere on the library lawn.
The Chef’s Showcase will feature nibbles from these Searsport food and dining establishments: Anglers Restaurant, Bricks-N-Sticks, Coastal Café, Dino’s Pizza, Hey Sailor!, Homeport Tavern, Massimo’s Restaurant and Studio Market, RasDal Falafel, Rio’s Spiked Café, Splendiferous Sweet Shoppe, Stone Fox Farm Creamery, Tozier’s Market, and Vinolio (Belfast). Carver Library cooks and bakers will also contribute. Cool off with water and lemonade. In addition, Vinolio will serve wine; the first glass is complementary.
“The library is grateful for the support of all the local businesses that are contributing to make this event one to remember,” said Carver Memorial, in a news release.
This special fundraiser will specifically benefit the beautification of the Carver Memorial Library grounds. Funds raised will go towards implementing the library’s landscape design plan, donated by landscape architect Joe Wassam.
“Your support will help the library look its best, and bring a moment of natural beauty and tranquility to those who visit,” said the Library.
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door (cash or check), and are available at the library. A door prize raffle is included.
The event will be held on the Carver Memorial Library lawn at 12 Union Street in Searsport (rain location: Searsport Community Building, 42 Prospect Street).
