KENNEBUNK — On Saturday, March 16, Christ Church, 6 Dane St., Kennebunk will present their annual St. Patrick’s Concert and Supper.

The concert will begin at 4 p.m. and the buffet will be open from 5:30 to 7 p.m.  A new element this year will be an exhibit of artwork inspired by Ireland, all by local artists.

Congregation Moderator and Chef de Cuisine Dan Moisan will prepare a delicious buffet supper of build-your-own corned beef sandwiches, with freshly cooked and hand-carved corned beef, a selection of condiments, sauerkraut, coleslaw, baked beans and homemade potato salad, as well as beverages and themed desserts. This event has drawn more attendance every year, so reservations are recommended.

Christ Church Music Director “Maestro” Warren King has gathered several excellent local musicians and singers, who will perform a varied program of nostalgic Irish music, with ample opportunities to sing along.

Among others, entertainers include flutist Diana McNulty, penny-whistle master Kevin Reams, and singers Danielle Mills, Alex Pratt, Owen White, and Schuyler White, all highly polished professionals.

For both events together, the suggested donation is $20, or $15 for students and seniors. For those attending just one event, the concert is $15, or $10 for students and seniors; and the supper is $10, or $8 for seniors and students; children under 12 are always free for any event. Admission is open to all, regardless of ability to give.

Proceeds will benefit the missions of Christ Church, supporting the homeless, the hungry, needy children, battered women, refugees, addiction recovery, and disaster relief.  The church cannot process credit cards, so please bring cash or checks.

The building is entirely handicap-accessible from the parking lot behind Kennebunk Town Hall, and also has a parking lot across Dane Street.
