16 In Our Community The Calvert County Times Thursday, September 7, 2017 ‘Dining in the Field’ The Plesiosaur That Ate Returns for Second Year Like A Whale Described as “the social event of the year,” the Dining in the Field inaugural event in 2016 raised $4,647 for the Young Farmers Scholarship Fund. This year’s event aims to double that. Tickets are al- ready selling for the Thursday, October 12 event set to take place on gorgeous Bris- coe Farms on the Patuxent River.  Cock- tails at 4:30 p.m. and dinner at 6 p.m., rain or shine.  Early bird tickets are $150 online through Dining Eats Local on Facebook and the Calvert County Farm Bureau site until September 15.  Dropping a check or cash off at the Farm Bureau will save you $5/ticket.  There are only 200 spots so committing early is recommended. Brain child of former delegate Sue Kullen, the event raised awareness and support for the local farming economy.  Kullen is an active member of Calvert Eats Local, a group that meets monthly at Calvert Library Prince Frederick that was started by Greg Bowen and the li- brary from a book discussion of Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Calvert Eats Local (CEL) has over 500 members and is dedicated to the support of sustainable agriculture and community in Southern Maryland.  Kullen said that she was inspired by a statistic she heard at a CEL meeting that suggested that if everyone were to purchase just 10% of their food locally, it would add $28 mil- lion to the local economy.  The delicious, high-end meal she and other volunteers designed was sourced entirely from 30 lo- cal and regional sources.  She challenged attendees to commit to purchasing as much of their food locally as was reason- able.  QȁݡՑ)х̰ݥAᕹЁѕ̰ɥɬ)̰ɍѕɥ͔ɐͅ)ɽ͠ݥѠɕ䁍ɅͅՍ)مɥ䁽ɽѕٕх́݅́)ᅵݡЁɥձ)ɽɕ̸)ɕ]ٕȁݹȁQɥ͠]ٕ)݅́ѡɥ䁍ѕɕȁȁѡ)ٕЁɽͱ䁑ѕȁѥ)х́ȁѡٕл )Mͅq$ٔѡ́ՙ$ٔ )ٕЁ չ䰁$ٔͽɍ䁙)ɽ䁹́$ٔե)չ今w -ձɕեѕ܁ѡ)Յ䁑ѕٽչѕ́ݡ͡ɕ)ѡȁͭ́ɅɽɅͥѼ)݅͡ ѕɕȁMՔɕ)ɕєѵɔݥѠɥ)ȁͥɅѥѡɵ)ɕMͼѡqэt)ݥѠ币9م9Q嵔Ѽ) M餁ͽͽ)ݕȁɅ́Ѽ)ѡٕл )AݥѠMѽ͉)ٕ́ݥѠѥ̰䁅)ٕ͕ٔѡ ])-э ѥɔѕѡɕ͡)ɽչȁɅ́ɽ9)MѕAɽՍ ɱ́ չ䁅)ѡɕȁɕ ɵ́ݕɔ)͕䁹Ёͭȁ͍չ́ͥ)ѡ͔ѡٕЁ́ѼЁ)ɵ́ЁѡՅѥ䁵ݡͅ)ɥ́ݽѡݡȁ丁M])Iչ!ɔݕɔɽ́ݥѠ)͍չ́ȁݥȻ Qɕ)х-ձ݅́)љհ̀ɕ䄤)Mи5é չQ ɸѥ)䁡䁙ٽɕմ)Q݅́饹Ё͕݅́)ͽݥѠѡЁѥհ͕ѥ)չ͕Ё͡͡ɕ)ѡ̻ $ѥѡЁѥ)́ɔمȁѡ=ѽȀȁٕ )I͕ٔȁ͕ЁЁѡх) ٕЁ5ɥ5͕շé)ѽаȸMѕɕ䰁)ѡɕеɕ͕Ց䁥ѡ))ɹYѕɅєAѽ䁕)ѥѱq Ʌѽ䁽5ɸ)ɥ͕嵽ɕͥ́ɽхɍѥ)ѡٽѥѕȁ)Aͥ́ͅѡɅ1є ɕф)ϊtQѡȁ́ȸɅ)I?e-A5͡)Uٕͥ䰁]ЁYɝȸ)ɕ䁅ͼɕѕѡɕՍѕ)5ɹɥչȁѡ)ɕѥȸ?e-Q)ɕѱ䁽䁅Ёѡ ٕЁ5)ɥ5͕մѡɽ՝Ȁܸ)Aͥ́ͅɔݕ)ɑ́ɽѡ̰ͅݸ)ȁѡȁȁ̰ѽЁ̰)̸!ݕٕȰչѥ܁)ͥ́ͅݕɔѡ՝ЁѼɕ)ѽ́ѡЁє͠եٕѡ)ɥɕѥ̸Q́ȁ͍ɥ)ͥͅȁݥѠɝɽչ)՝ѠѥѕѠѡܴ)ȁ܁ѡЁЁѡɽ݅丁Q)ѕѠЁЁѥѼѥ́)ѡȁ̰ͥͅЁѽѡȁ)ѕѡЁѕɅ)ѥ́ɽѡ݅ѕȸQ́)屔́չݸѡȁɥ)ɕѥ̰Ё́չѽé)ݡ̸)Qѥѥݡ)ѕȁ́хѱ͔)ٕɝЁٽѥͥ́ͅ)ݡ́͡ɕ䁽ѡѕٕ)ѕ́ѡٽѥѡ́)屔ѡȁɕ)ɔͥȁєɥͥɽȴ)Ёѽ̸Qٽѥѕ)䁉Ѽ́)ɍձѥɽ՝Ёѡ)ͽѡ݅ɐٕЁхɍѥ)ɥѡ1є ɕх̸)Q́ɕ͕ɍ́Չ͡䁅)ѕɹѥѕѽ)ɽ ɝѥѡUѕ)Mхѕ́I?e-Aɼ)ͽȁ 䁅Ё5͡U)ٕͥ䁥!չѥѽ]XUM)ȸ?e-́ɕ镐)͍ѥЁ饹ѡՑ䁽)5ͽ齥ɥɕѥ̰ѡ)ѕ䁉ݕٽѥѡ)ͥ٥ɽиȁɔȴ)ѥхЁȸMѕɕ)ЀشȰиȁMє)ɕٕэչ嵐ظ)Q͕մ́䁙ɽ)Ѽԁͥ̀)ձ̰ܸȁ͕̰хݥѠ)م$̰(иȁɕ̀Ԁ쁍)ɕչȀԁ͕մ)ɔ݅́ѕɕ ȁɔ)ɵѥЁѡ͕մ)ٕ̰ȁ͡٥ͥ)ѡݕͥєЁܹٕѵɥԴ)͕մȁشȸ1)́܁́QݥѕȰ)%хɅAѕɕи)ɽ 54)Aɕ́I͔(́ɐՅUѕ])䁽 ɥ)Q ٕЁ չ ɐ չ ͥ́՜䁥ՕɽѥȁѡɐՅ)Uѕ]䁽 ɥ͍ձȁ]͑䰁Mи̸AѼѕ䁽Uѕ]䁽 ٕ) չ)1ɕՍѥ5ɹɥ͍ձѕ䁍ѡȁȸMѕɕ䁍ɕѱ䁽䁅)ѡ ٕЁ5ɥ5͕մ
