WMH Architects Has Designs on Serving Lunch

 

On Thursday, December 7, nearly 100 hungry neighbors from all over MDI gathered at The Neighborhood House to join WMH Architects for lunch. As part of the “Community Café” program, WMH was generously sponsoring the gathering, including a lunch. WMH Architects have been long time supporters of The Neighborhood House, not just lending their skills entertaining for lunch, but lending their award-winning design talents on several projects as well.

There was a great deal of behind the scenes work that went into this particular lunch which included Shepherd’s Pie (traditional, as well as vegetarian), salad, bread from Old Dog Baking Co., and an array of desserts. In the days leading up to the gathering, an amazing group of volunteers took to the kitchen were they browned over 50 lbs of ground beef, and managed to peel, cook, and mash 100 lbs of potatoes! Judging by the reaction of the lunch patrons, the efforts were well worth it and greatly appreciated.

In addition to providing a chance for people to gather and enjoy lunch, this particular Café also included a performance by some of the talented students in Ms. Graves music program at Mt. Desert Elementary. The students performed several songs which were enjoyed by the crowd, and Ms. Graves plans on bringing more of her students back to the Café periodically throughout the year.
