Wilson College will host the second annual “People, Places, Plates” dinner on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Laird Hall.
The dinner celebrates the work of the Fulton Center for Sustainability Studies and the Franklin County Historical Society. The event begins with a social hour and Fulton Farm tours. Shuttles will meet guests behind Laird Hall for transport to the farm. The family style dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. “Don’t Look Down,” a local rock, country, bluegrass, and folk band will entertain from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tickets for the event are $48 per person, $85 per pair, or $400 for a table of eight.
According to Chris Mayer, Director of the Fulton Center, proceeds from this year’s event will assist both Fulton Center for Sustainability Studies and the Franklin County Historical Society with “program development in order to continue to connect their missions with the community.”
In response to customer requests, this year’s locally sourced menu has a selection of whole-food, plant based vegetarian dishes for dinner and a double chocolate cake for dessert.
Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for a selection of donated raffle items. They can also have their pictures taken in the farmer-themed photo booth provided by J. Bryant Photography. The Franklin County Historical Society will have farm window displays in Laird Hall which will highlight the products of local farms. These displays will provide guests the opportunity to learn more about the work of the Historical Society, local farms, and the foods and beverages they enjoyed throughout the evening.
