Hi Friends,

Full_Belly_Benefit_Dance_Poster_2016Once again, Next Barn Over is co-sponsoring a terrific benefit dance party to support our region’s local food security. The sponsors of this event are local farmers, educators, and food purveyors who recognize the importance of strengthening food security both at the immediate level through the work of Amherst Survival Center and the Northampton Survival Centers, and through Kestrel Land Trust’s long term efforts to protect local farmland, and this year through CISA’s Food For All Campaign. Those who attended any of the past events can attest that we had walloping good times dancing the night away and raising over $4000! This year The No-No’s will once again provide us with toe tapping dance tunes, our co-sponsors will provide us with snacks, and various artisans will provide us with a cash bar featuring local libations. And new this year, we will have a 50/50 cash raffle in order to raise as much money for our recipients as possible.

So please join us this Saturday, March 19th at the JCA Social Hall (742 Main St, Amherst) from 8pm – midnight as we dance to some great music and raise money for a pressing cause. Attached is a .jpg of the Full-Belly poster with all the details.

Here is the Facebook event page – please share this on your wall and invite your friends. Feel free to pass this along to your friends and family.

I hope to see you there!

Your farmer,
Ray Young
