The following was submitted by Rolling Ridge Retreat & Conference Center.
Rolling Ridge, a peaceful retreat and conference center on the quiet shores of Lake Cochichewick in North Andover, Massachusetts, will be hosting its’ second annual “Buy a Plate, Give a Plate” Holiday Lunch on Saturday, December 15 at Noon.
There are many people living in our local community who have to decide between heating and food this holiday season, and Rolling Ridge is asking for donations of $18 per meal and hopes to serve up to 50 families at the festive holiday luncheon. Donors are also invited to purchase tickets for their own lunch.
“Buy a Plate, Give a Plate” takes place from noon to 2.30pm on Saturday, December 15. Rolling Ridge will be working with a local community homeless shelter, and a local transportation company will provide complimentary transportation to the lunch. In addition to a delicious meal in the Lakeside Gallery at the festively decorated estate, guests will enjoy a roaring fire, seasonal hot chocolate and listen to Christmas carols. Tickets and donations may be made by calling Joanna Ouellette in the sales office at Rolling Ridge: 978 682 8815 or visiting the Rolling Ridge website (www.rollingridge.org)
