4th Annual Taste of the Valley
BY DONNA ALLEN The Vermont Journal CHESTER –The Chester American Legion is pleased to announce their 4th Annual Taste of The Valley Food Festival on Thursday Evening, November 3, 2011. This is a fundraiser for the many programs at Post 67. This year funds will go to two new recipients. The first program being supported is the Camp Keewaydin Program at Chester/ Andover Elementary School and the second program is the huge Home Alone Thanksgiving Dinner where a wonderful Turkey Dinner with all the fixings are served every Thanksgiving Day to people who may be alone or just would like to come down and dine with friends and neighbors. Over the last couple of years it has become quite and event. Well over 100 people were fed last year. Most of the food is donated from the volunteers,
but there are some expenses. The Taste of The Valley is a great opportunity for diners to experience menu items from area restaurants. It is always a menu item they are well known for or maybe an item they will be introducing for the first time. For example Pizza Stone is going to bring their famous wings and their Gluten free Pizza as well. The Restaurants participating are set up around the perimeter of the huge dining room. The center of the room is set up for dining. It is as simple as taking your plate and going around the room and sampling some of the best food the area has to offer from appetizers to Dessert. It will be a great time for a great cause.
