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.

Crazy, hazy days of fruit salad.

It was a beautiful summer Sunday.  And it was Frank's birthday (one of our volunteers).  And it was a day full of fruit salad, and garden salad, and fresh tomatoes with balsamic, and hard boiled eggs, and mac and cheese -- and dessert (pound cake and ice cream), of course.  What could be better?  Find out in September.

The Great Yard Sale

On Sunday, August 4, we held a yard sale at Etz Hayim Synagogue to raise money for our Elijah's Table dinners.  Good forces were on our side and, despite early reports of bad weather, it did not rain until the yard sale was over.  It was a glorious summer day, and a fun and successful yard sale.  I hope you were able to attend but, if you couldn't, stay tuned next year.  After all, there was face painting and free treats to eat!
