This blog is posted by "Elijah's Table," a joint project of the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration (1 Hood Road, Derry, NH) and Etz Hayim Synagogue (1-1/2 Hood Road, Derry, NH), both located on Hood Road in Derry, NH. Twice a month we provide free, family-friendly dinners, which are served in a relaxed atmosphere. There are other organizations in the Derry, New Hampshire area that also offer free and delicious meals to the public. Please see the calendar on the right-hand side of this blog for a list of upcoming meals. And don't forget the offerings of the Sonshine Soup Kitchen (described on the left-hand side of this blog) and The Derry Salvation Army!

"I love the flower girl..."

It started to pour just before dinner started on Sunday and, perhaps as a result, we had a relatively small crowd.  Still, the food was delicious (noodle kugel; tuna, egg, and garden salads; watermelon; ice cream and cookies; and a wide assortment of beverages) and the crowd friendly.  We had lots of teens helping out, so the energy was great.  And for the door prize?  Flowers.   
Hey, do you remember the 1960's song, "The Rain, the Park, and Other Things" by the Cowsills?  Check it out:

Reverend Bonin has a great voice!

Today I stopped by the church to check out the dinner.  The food looked great (chicken, beans, lovely salad, pie, cookies), and I got to hear Reverend Bonin sing and play guitar.  What a treat!  I understand that he plays often at the church's Elijah's Table dinners. Check it out!
