What could be more delicious than a farm to table dinner in August?

The Kiwanis Club of Waynesville has been working with local gardens and farms this summer to prepare a “Share the Harvest” dinner at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, at the Laurel Ridge Country Club pavilion. The dinner is a fundraiser for the Kiwanis International Eliminate Project.

The Kiwanis Eliminate Project is a worldwide effort to supply tetanus shots to protect 61 million women and babies in third world countries.  Around the world, a baby dies every 9 minutes from tetanus. The series of shots costing $1.80 will protect the mother and all of her offspring from maternal/neonatal tetanus.

Executive chef Alton “Al” Terry will prepare food that has been grown and raised in the gardens and farms of Haywood County. David Russell, a Haywood County local, will play several instruments, sing folk music and tell some fun-filled folk stories.

Tickets are now on sale for $50.

To purchase tickets, reserve a table eight or learn more about this signature event, call Ann Kline at 734-4310, Judith Antross 813-390-1706 or email- jantross@earthlink.net.
