Cabin Fever Party is approaching
BOLTON LANDING - A treasured social event in Bolton annually features local folks reconnecting with old friends and making new ones while enjoying gourmet food plus dancing to live music.
This Cabin Fever Party, to be held this year on Saturday March 9, is a free fundraiser for the Bolton Free Library that attracts as many as 150 people to enjoy delectable offerings prepared by local volunteer chefs.
This year, it may be even more of a hit due to a venue change — it has moved from the Town Highway garage to the Bolton Conservation Club on Edgecomb Pond Road.
To be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the event again has a tropical theme, which not only will be reflected in the food offerings — but attendees are likely to be persuaded to dance the macarena and limbo. Decorations will also reflect a South Pacific influence.
Entertainment will be provided by the "Blue Moon" band, which in years past has inspired many to dance the night away.
Prior years’ Cabin Fever parties have raised as much as $1,800 for the Bolton library.
Attendees are asked to bring dishes to share. Bring your favorite potluck dish to share, along with the recipe so it can be included in a community cookbook now being assembled. Coffee, tea, soda and water will be provided. There will be a bonfire, a 50/50 raffle. Donations are accepted at the door.
Volunteers are still needed for set up on Saturday at 2 p.m. and for clean-up
Sunday, beginning at 9 a.m.
Those who can help with the above are urged to call Library Director Megan Baker at 644-2233 or Emma Calautti at 644-3128, or contact her at Blue_Snow230@msn.com.
