Helping America's Most Vulnerable

House Party at Ken's Place!

Many thanks to Polly Legere and Sarah Higgins for a fun evening

June Koegel, Sarah Higgins, and Saco Mayor Roland Michaud chat at Ken's Place

Sarah Higgins and Polly Legere hosted a fantastic House Party at Ken's Place Restaurant in Scarborough. House Parties are a terrific way to spread the word about our work, and answer questions in an informal, casual setting. Often they are held in someone's home or on a garden deck in the summertime.

The idea is to provide a forum for learning without the pressure of a fundraiser event. Generally there are no more than 15 or 20 people in attendance, and everyone has a chance to introduce themselves and get to know each other with simple hors d'overs and beverages.

Over a dozen of Sarah and Polly's contacts and friends joined June Koegel to share some delicious seafood and hear about the work of Volunteers of America.

Great questions were asked, and several people will follow up by volunteering or keeping informed on some of our projects.

Big thanks to the Dynamic Duo of Sarah and Polly for hosting this event. It was a huge success.

As for Ken's Place, it proved to all in attendance that it deserves its legendary reputation as the go-to restaurant for fried seafood in Southern Maine.

N.L. English's review of Ken's Place in the Portland Press Herald reads, in part, "We all have our favorite spots for fried seafood, and Ken's Place is mine."

If you'd like to host a House Party, we would love to tell you about our work! Contact Michael Coon for more information.
