JOIN US FOR "A TASTE OF REDWALL" TO SUPPORT ST. MARTIN KIDS
The Redwall series of children's fantasy novels by popular author Brian Jacques serves as inspiration for "A Taste of Redwall," a St. Mary's fundraiser May 4, from 3 to 5 p.m., in the St. Mary's Activity Center in Spring Lake. All proceeds benefit St. Martin de Porres Orphanage Center in Tanzania, Africa. Redwall is a medieval monastery popularized in a children's book & tv series. Local bakeries are donating Redwall-inspired desserts, including cranberry almond scones from The Village Baker, a gluten-free item from Sugar Bowl and surprise desserts from Happy Endings and New Creations Café. Guests will taste desserts and vote on the one that is most authentically Redwall-inspired, plus the one that tastes the best. There will be Redwall face painting, a trivia quiz and Friar Hugo will teach us how to make Honey-Baked Apples. Ticket prices are five dollars, an excellent value. Bring the whole family! Got questions? Contact Christine Ansorge, chairwoman (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
