ROCKLAND, Maine — People from St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and friends from various city committees are planning a public baked bean supper to raise $3,000, which is the cost of an Eye Pal Ace Plus reader to be donated to community and church volunteer John Michael Grondin,  at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 18, at St. Peter’s parish hall. The menu will include baked beans, hot dogs, ham, salads, bread, desserts and beverages. Cost is $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-12 and free for children under 6. Direct donations for the reading machine will be greatly appreciated. Any funds over the goal of $3,000 will be given to St. Peter’s Rector’s Discretionary Fund which is used for people with emergency needs for housing, food, electricity and other special needs. Donations by check should be made out to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and in the memo line “Grondin Reading Machine.” For additional information, contact Marty Rogers at 236-8922 or mlr@midcoast.com or St. Peter’s Church at 594-8191 or stpetersrockland@stpetersrockland.org or visit www.stpetersrockland.org.
