All are invited! Call or email to make reservations (walk ins OK, too!). The Burke Area Chamber of Commerce will host the 7th Annual Community Dinner at the Burke Community Center (located next to the town office building at 212 School Street in West Burke). It’s the Burke Chamber’s way of saying thanks to the community and chamber members for their support. The dinner is by donation with all proceeds going to the Burke Senior Meal Site which provides lunch and a social atmosphere for local senior citizens. The Burke Chamber hopes to raise at least $1,000! Suggested donation is $10 per person.
This year’s menu is 'Thanksgiving in March’ (with a potluck twist) featuring turkey, stuffing, potatoes, veggies and more. Dinner guests are also invited to share favorite recipes and bring along a potluck side dish, casserole or dessert.
New this year, all dinner guests will be entered to win great raffle prizes including gift certificates to local restaurants and shops. There is no cost to enter the raffle, but you must be present to win. Winners will be chosen during the dinner.
Location: Burke Community Center, 212 School St. West Burke, VT
