One Dish Wonder Casserole Sale @ The Library

The Burlington Library Association, Friends of the Library, are once again holding a casserole sale on Saturday, November 17th . Our last sale was hugely popular, and we sold out quickly. This year we are hoping to have many more donations of one dish meals. We are looking for volunteers and hope you will help us. We will have sign-up sheets in the library and will have available foil pans with plastic covers. We are hoping for a wide variety of dishes: stew, chili, pasta based dishes, vegetarian meals, vegetable based dishes, ratatouilles, curried dishes, ragout, shepherd's pie, soups and chowders, quiches, seafood casseroles, gluten free, etc.
We will provide volunteers with details about meal preparation, labeling, and delivery instructions. To that end, we request that you provide us with an email address when you sign up so we can send pertinent information to you.
Please sign up to prepare a casserole or two and encourage your friends to volunteer also. We look forward to a very successful event.
Thank you for your continued support of the Burlington Public Library!
