To celebrate Maine Harvest Week, RSU 20 served locally grown food during the week, heard from some local farmers and enjoyed a literary buffet, where books were paired with either fruits or vegetables. On Monday, students at CASS elementary in Belfast enjoyed local beef, grown by Curtis Custom Meats in Warren and melon from Cross Patch Farm in Morrill for lunch. Students also heard from water buffalo farmers as part of a new program called lunch with a farmer. Then Mrs. Manning’s third grade class attended the literary buffet in the library where Lizzie was brave enough to eat an edible flower.

Hospital Aid’s Silver Tea is Dec. 10

December 4th, 2014

Dining Rm

The annual Silver Tea, sponsored by the Waldo County General Hospital Aid, will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 10, from 2 – 5 p.m. at the home of Philip and Mary Carthage, 224 High Street (on the corner of Primrose and High Street), Belfast. The public is invited to attend and enjoy the sandwiches and desserts served by Aid members. Drinks will include punch, coffee and tea served from silver services.

 

This year’s setting is a Greek-revival style home built in 1851 for Calvin Hervey, a watch maker and jewelry store owner. Mr. Hervey was one of the original trustees of the Belfast Free Library.

Guests will be welcomed by a dramatic entryway and original woodwork in the entry. In 2005, while the owners were away, a water pipe broke and flooded the kitchen area at the back of the house. This had been remodeled in a modern style although the fireplace surround is made of old doors that Mr. Carthage salvaged from another historical house in town. The kitchen floor boards were reused in the entryway.

 

Rooms on both floors will be open to tour. A built-in glass case on the second floor displays items found in the house, such as a Knights of Pythias uniform belonging to Col. Ben Lowe.

 

There is no admission charge to attend the tea, but donations will be accepted. All funds raised from the tea will benefit the hospital.

 

The winning tickets for the Aid’s holiday raffle “Spotlighting our Outlying Communities” will be drawn at the tea. The available prizes include gift certificates to stores, restaurants and entertainment venues in the towns where Waldo County Healthcare health centers are located. Tickets are on sale at $1 each or 6 for $5 at the hospital gift shop.

 

For more information, call 930-6739. The snow date for the tea is the next day, Thursday, Dec. 11, at the same time.
