Amy Scott presented an interesting talk on the Local Food Connection, which is fostering a movement in the greater Bethel region that encourages all community members to grow, prepare, serve, purchase, and consume local foods. Amy has been involved for 3 years. One activity being promoted is a Buying Club -- now at 35 members -- for purchasing Maine produce. Another is the formation of a Culinary Club at Telstar, using the kitchen at the Alliance Church. The Local Food Connection organization meets monthly and is a member of the Bethel Area Nonprofit Collaborative.
For Rotary Information, Ellie gave a rundown of the many activities carried out and planned by the very energetic Interact group at Telstar.
