Supper: The Christian Service Program’s annual Poor Man’s Supper was held Nov. 1 at First Methodist Church. Attendees were served a bowl of soup to depict what the hungry go through. This time the event kicked off a fundraising campaign for the renovations of a facility on Levy Street recently donated by Hope Connections, which provides shelter for the homeless. Walmart, Market 127 received the Sister Margaret McCaffrey Award for exemplifying the meaning of giving.

Whiskey: At Water of Life: The Art of Whiskey on Nov. 6, guests sampled five types of whiskey – a Japanese singlemalt, a modern Texas blended whiskey, a thrice distilled Irish whiskey, an oakcasked Scotch and a strong American bourbon. Also on hand were heavy hors d’oeuvres, served courtesy of Cuban Liquor. Staff throughout the Norton Art Gallery, where the event was held, informed attendees of the homelands of the whiskeys.
