Please join Our Neighbors’ Table at the Annual Breakfast to celebrate filling one million plates in 2017! This is nearly double the amount of meals served in 2016 and the increased impact is thanks to support from the community. The Breakfast will honor 2017 Community Champions: the Institution for Savings and Jim & Pat Smith, longtime volunteers. Dana Marshall of 92.5 the River is the event emcee and Erin Lynch of the Franklin Food Pantry is the guest speaker. Individual tickets are available for $35 and table sponsorships start at $500. For more information or to purchase tickets and sponsorships, visit www.ourneighborstable.org/breakfast.
Local businesses and organizations will open their doors Tuesday, October 24th from 5:30-7:30pm for the Annual Downtown Trick-or-Treat. Count your candy over a pizza at Flatbread that night and a donation for each pie sold (take out or dine-in) will go to the Chamber of Commerce. Now that’s an extra treat!
All ghosts, goblins, and their buddies should proceed at their own pace and visit as many locations as they can. Everyone looks forward to seeing you in costume. Be sure to stop in Market Square for a special surprise from our sponsor, The Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank. All participating businesses and organizations will be listed on our map.
Click to download a PDF of our map! You can print your own map or pick one up that night. Maps will be available during the event at a table in front of the Chamber of Commerce and in each participating business. Choose your starting location and GO!
Contact our office with any questions by calling 978-388-3178 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re a member business and want to be added to our map let us know!
