The popular Taste of the Tri-Town will take place at the picturesque Mattapoisett YMCA, overlooking beautiful Mattapoisett Harbor and Ned’s Point Lighthouse, on Friday, September 7 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The evening will feature wine tasting and samplings of the best of Tri-Town restaurants with Spirits of Marion providing the latest wine, liquor and beer offerings.

Past grants include the Monarch Butterfly Garden Habitat at Center School, Steps to Respect Anti-Bullying at Old Hammondtown School and Time Travel through Genealogy at Rochester Memorial School.
