Buckland Public Library Progressive Dinner

Some very special friends of the Buckland Public Library are once again offering the Historic Upper Buckland Progressive Dinner on April 26th at 5 PM. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along upper Buckland’s historic district while enjoying a three course meal at three of the historic houses. The event will begin at 5 PM at the site of the original Buckland Post Office with a lovely selection appetizers accompanied by local wine.   Guests will then return to Upper Street and on to the Zenas Graham House ( now the Bird’s Nest B&B) where a choice of vegetarian, meat based or gluten free quiche and fresh spring asparagus will be served. The spring dinner concludes at the Deacon John Porter House with some delicious desserts. Proceeds from this event are to benefit the library. A $40.00 donation per ticket is requested.   Call Ann Bodkhe at 413-625-9455 for reservations before April 23rd, but be advised that the event sold out quickly last year. Limited parking is available at each home for guests who require transportation.
