Choirs to perform at Food Pantry Benefit
CHESTERFIELD, N.H. — The Chesterfield Council on Aging has expanded the Annual Food Pantry Benefit to include the HRHS choir and New Hingham Elementary Regional School choir, making this event a truly multi-generational extravaganza.
The event was standing room only last year, so the New Hingham Elementary school at 30 Smith Road will be the new venue for the benefit. The large gym with its stage and connecting cafeteria will allow room for more people and a better experience.
The event with an International Buffet starting at noon on Sunday, Jan. 13, and the music program is scheduled to begin at the same time. Chesterfield's Council on Aging Director Jan Gibeau spoke with Susan Hatfield, the music teacher from New Hingham, and reported that, the kids are "all in" for this adventure and excited about it.
The Council on Aging is funded in part for this event by a multigenerational grant awarded by Highland Valley Elder Services to the Chesterfield COA.
The Food Pantry is part of the Northampton Survival Center. Opened in 1979, the Northampton Survival Center is an emergency food provider and referral service serving 18 communities throughout Hampshire County. With food pantries in Northampton and Goshen, it distributes a daily average of over 3,000 pounds of free, nutritious food to low-income community members.
