Pancake and music breakfast benefit for Midcoast Conservancy
Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 21, 7:30-10:30 a.m., for Midcoast Conservancy’s Hidden Valley Nature Center annual Pancake Breakfast at the Alna General Store. Everyone is invited to attend; it is a great opportunity to meet other members of the outdoor education and recreation community! A $10 donation gets you a stack of pancakes (blueberry or plain) with coffee and a side. But, more importantly, your donation will help sustain the recreational and educational programming that Midcoast Conservancy provides.
Throughout the morning, the aptly-named musical group Well Seasoned will entertain diners. The core of Well Seasoned is the duo Pixie Lauer and Dan Townsend. Pixie is a local singer-songwriter, formerly of the Midcoast folk group Different Shoes. Dan, a regular visitor from northeast Pennsylvania for many years, is now retired and living in Maine full-time. Dan and Pixie play an eclectic sampling of covers from the likes of Leadbelly, Bill Staines, Kate Wolf, Guy Clark, Greg Brown, John Prine, and local songwriter Joe Barth. Pixie and Dan often have guest musicians join them, each adding their own dash of seasoning to their musical offerings.
On hand at the store will be a collection of handmade picnic tables and benches for sale, made of sustainably-harvested wood from Hidden Valley Nature Center. Each year staff and volunteers build creative, unique, and long-lasting outdoor furniture that are perfect for gardens, decks, and patios.
The Alna General Store is a vibrant community hub open six days a week, where neighbors and visitors gather to enjoy great food and great company. They generously donate their time to help support Midcoast Conservancy. The store is located at 2 Dock Road in Alna.
