Not only is it an opportunity for an affordable Saturday supper, but it is a way to help others. As a "not for profit" organization, the profits of our fundraising activities, are shared with agencies which assist those in need such as local home health agencies, food pantries, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association and others. Ellacoya Chapter, with another area chapter, sponsors Plymouth Assembly of the International Order of Rainbow for Girls. Each year, special fundraising efforts and monies earned from the chapters across the state, are donated to a charity selected by the State Leaders.
Ellacoya Chapter members come from many area communities including Meredith, Ossipee, Plymouth and surrounding towns. All work together to make the beans, salads, pies and other items which our friends from near and far enjoy for their Saturday night out.
