ARCW to host benefit dinners

A series of regular dinners are being scheduled by the Arts and Recreation Commission of Whitehall to benefit its summer theater programs for general audiences and youth education.

The first of these dinners will be held from4to7 p.m.on Tuesday, Dec. 13 at Our Lady of Hope Church Hall (the corner of Skene and Wheeler Streets).

ARCW president Robert Gendron said that professional chef Danielle Ingerson ofWhitehallis preparing a complete ham dinner for the first dinner and the meal will include salad, a ham entrée, vegetables, bread, dessert and coffee.

Regularly scheduled dinners are expected to be held throughout the year and Ingerson has been asked to prepare a variety of dinners for these meals.

According to managing director David Mohn, these dinners are intended to provide on-going income for the year-round expenses of conducting the summer theater programs.

It’s also hoped the dinners provide an opportunity for local residents to become more aware of the ARCW and its programs.

The announcement of the summer schedule of performances at Cooke’sIslandwill be released in March.

The price of all the meals will be $9. Reservations are not required and takeout will be available at no charge.
