Celebrate the holidays with your neighbors and friends at the Community Potluck in the vestry of the First of the First Congregational Church on Saturday Dec. 15 . Bring something to share or just come by and enjoy the evening. Potluck starts at 5:30
The third annual Christmas concert will follow in the acoustically spectacular sanctuary with musicians from New Gloucester, Gray , and Alfred.
A New Gloucester Christmas is a collaboration of many artists from the Greater New Gloucester area. Spearheaded by guitarist Jim Gallant, fiddler Mike Conant, and the members of Bald Hill, this year’s line-up includes a host of new participants, including noted Seussian scholar Don Libby and choirs representing St. Gregory’s in Gray and the New Gloucester First Congregational Church. Returning to the stage from previous Christmas appearances are Emily and Steve MacKinnon (of the Kennebunk River Band), George Wardwell, and percussion guru Tony Castro. Show time is 7 pm.
The dinner is free and open to the public as is the concert but a suggested donation of $10 will benefit the Church’s Fuel Assistance Fund which helps fund needy families during the Maine winter.
