Andover Historical Society Pot Luck Supper

By Susan Norris

Andover Historical Society

On Thursday, October 18, everyone is welcome to gather at the Highland Lake Grange Hall in East Andover for the Andover Historical Society’s yearly celebration of all things gone well this past year. Visit, eat yummy food, and over dessert and coffee enjoy our speaker, who is sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Happily this year, we have managed to (re)snag Edie Clark (who was snowed out for our supper last October!) to speak to us. Her presentation is titled Baked Beans and Fried Clams: How Food Defines a Region.

“Does food have anything to do with who we are as a region, who we are as New Englanders?” Edie hails from the Monadnock region and is a regular columnist for Yankee Magazine as well as having published books and essays relating to New England.

Here’s the plan:

5:30 to 6 PM: Happy Hour. Punch and light snacks provided. BYO wine or beer if you like.

6 to 7 PM: Supper

7 PM: Speaker

If you last name falls between the letters A-J, please bring an entree; K-R, a salad; S-Z, a dessert. Of course, you are free to flip-flop with anyone if you both so choose.

It shapes up as a delightful and delicious evening all around. Hope you can make it!
