Eastern Star hosting bean supper Saturday

HOLDERNESS — Continue your 4th of July celebration by joining with friends and family at Eastern Star's monthly public Bean Supper on Saturday, July 5. Ellacoya Chapter's Bean Supper is held at the Squam Valley Masonic Building on Rt 3/25 at the Center Harbor/Holderness town line.

Tickets, available at the door, are $8.00 each for adults and $3.00 for children, with ticket sales beginning at 4:30. Serving starts at 5:00 p.m. and continues until 7:00 p.m. or until food runs out.

The menu includes ham, baked beans, meat balls, potato casserole, salads and pie, all prepared by members of the chapter.

Not only is it an opportunity for an affordable Saturday supper, but it is a way to help others. The proceeds of our fundraising activities, in addition to helping the chapter meet its necessary expenses, are shared with local, state and national organizations such as area Visiting Nurse Associations, Food Banks, and American Heart Association. Ellacoya Chapter, together with another area Eastern Star chapter, sponsors Plymouth Assembly, International Order of Rainbow for Girls. This year monies, from a special fundraising effort by all Eastern Star chapters throughout New Hampshire, will be donated to the Shriners Burns Hospital in Boston.
