The Windham High School Katahdin Program Chefs Are Coming Back to Prepare Another RVCC Free Community Meal!

Thursday, December 12, 5:00pm to 6:00pm, at the Church, 27 Main St., Raymond Village

The students of The Katahdin Program; Windham High School’s alternative learning initiative, had such a good time planning and preparing RVCC’s October free community meal that they want to do it again. This time, they’re working with RVCC parishioner and Portland Firefighter Craig Messinger to put another memorable and delicious meal on the table at Raymond Village Community Church, Thursday, December 12.

“Craig makes a mean seafood chowder. His chowder will be paired with vegetarian minestrone, salad, homemade bread, and carrot cake prepared by the Katahdin Program students. Other members of our congregation are getting into the act, preparing even more desserts.”, said RVCC Pastor Nancy Foran. “These meals are completely free. The whole point of these meals is to build community: everyone is encouraged to attend, to see old friends and meet new neighbors before the Winter closes in.”  

The Katahdin Program utilizes the classroom, the outdoors and the greater community to provide alternative education programming for students, grades 9-12, in the RSU #14 Windham/Raymond school district. The program recognizes that all learners have strengths, assets, and interests. Katahdin staff believe that every individual is an important part of the learning community, whose core values are integrity, safety, respect, responsibility, and kindness.

For further information about RVCC and Free Community Meals, email Rev. Foran at  nancy1@maine.rr.com , or call the Church at 655-7749. To learn more about the Katahdin Program, go to their website at:  https://www.katahdinprogram.org .

Casco Bay Tummlers
Performing

Raymond Village Community Church


By definition, a Tummler is an entertainer, rabble-rouser and creator of joyful chaos.  The Tummlers first got together on Peaks Island in Casco Bay in 1987. 

The band members play no fewer than a dozen instruments among them. Their lively music draws on a variety of sources, from traditional Klezmer recordings to Balkan folk music and Yiddish swing. Some might call their music Jewish Jazz. 

Join us as we enjoy their rabble-rousing music in Raymond!!!
