— Shoreham’s Friends of the Platt Memorial library will host a Benefit Concert and Maple Dessert Contest on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Music will be performed by the Addison County folk group Zephyr.

The local Americana music quartet brings together influences of folk, bluegrass, blues, gospel, country and the singer-songwriter tradition. The members of the band are Matthew Dickerson, Susan Nop, Kathleen Smith, and Dutton Smith.

A maple dessert contest and tasting will be held in conjunction with the concert. Local cooks are invited to submit their favorite maple dessert, which must be made with Vermont maple syrup, to share with the public.

Concert goers will sample the desserts and vote for their favorites by making cash donations into the respective ballot boxes for each dessert item.

All cash votes will benefit the Friends of the Platt Memorial Library’s efforts to fund further renovations of the historic building.

The creator of the most popular item will win the soon-to-be sought after Golden Sap Bucket Trophy.

You can show off your talent and enter a maple dessert. Entries must include Vermont syrup and a recipe card.

Entry forms are available at the library or at www.plattlib.org.

The family friendly event will offer free admission.

A fundraising raffle will be held.

Attendees are asked to just bring their appetites and plenty of cash for voting.

The event will be held at the library, 297 Main St in Shoreham.
