JEFFERSON — The Lincoln County Democratic Committee plans to hold its annual harvest dinner at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at Le Barn, at 132 Waldoboro Road.

“We’re thrilled that Jim and Marie Lindsey have loaned us the use of this remarkable building that they have so lovingly restored,” said Valarie Johnson, organizer of the event, according to a news release from the Newcastle-based committee. “I’m looking forward to seeing all our friends and neighbors in this new, larger space where we can all spread out a little.”

A simple meal of hearty chowders, soups and stews, which will include vegan options, is supplied by committee volunteers and accompanied by bread and apple cider. The meal is served by candidates and elected officials, and the event concludes with desserts like apple and pumpkin pies.

The event costs $20 per person or $50 to be listed as a host.

The committee uses the money it raises through this and other fundraising initiatives to support its efforts in Lincoln County.

The harvest dinner is open to the public. Details about how to make reservations or be listed as a host can be accessed online at

The deadline for reservations is Wednesday, Sept. 28. For more information, call Johnson at 207-549-3358.
