Friends of Music at Guilford has been gifting the Guilford Central School with a Music Enrichment Program for the past five seasons, with partial funding from the Max Y. Seaton Trust. The balance of the budget is raised by a dinner and concert evening in a Brattleboro venue featuring the program’s residency artists and also, for the past two seasons, by a Spaghetti Supper held at the school.
This year’s pasta supper is set for Thursday, March 21, from 5 to 7 p.m.; the school is at 374 School Rd., Guilford Center.
The menu includes pasta with a gluten-free option, a vegetarian sauce made from scratch, homemade meatballs for carnivores, green salad, bread both plain and garlic, beverages, desserts and a sundae bar.
If anything annoys me more than bad planning for development of tranquil public green spaces, it’s boring furniture, and the impact of production on the planet and society. In the 25 years KM and I have been living in domestic bliss (careful here, KM) we have always looked at labels to see where things (food included) are produced before we buy them (always choosing local, regional or USA, first), carried our own canvas shopping bags and recycled, long before these now common practices were common.
Hannaford has made corporate decisions that play out in strange ways at the checkout aisle.
Having shopped for nearly half a century (and with a grandfather in the grocery business), when I’m ready to check out I put my groceries on the belt in easy bagging order. Heavy things, cans, bottles, and boxes go first, then the smaller, lighter things such as parsley or garlic. A cashier could simply scan and pop it into the bag. We worked as a team to keep things moving along.
Not too long ago, I realized cashiers were scanning and piling all groceries to the other side without bagging anything. Only after all items had been scanned would any bagging occur. It was taking almost twice as long.
