Joining us for Lunch at The Easton Experience?
Many of you have signed up for The Easton Experience tomorrow, an exploration of how Easton, PA used local food as a focus of its economic development strategy. For those that have not signed up, there is still an opportunity for you attend, if you act fast!
You will not want to miss this event! The Easton experience will provide the opportunity to hear from the people who made it happen! We’ll start with Mayor Sal Panto and PA State Representative (and RenewLV Board Member) Bob Freeman telling us a little history of what it was like and how Easton’s amazing turn-around happened.
Dundore and Heister, the top shelf butcher at the Easton Public Market will be catering lunch for us, with five kinds of fabulous meat dishes and some vegan options, too. Chef Mike Schnaulzer will be preparing the lunch at 11 a.m. in the demonstration kitchen designed and installed by Morris Black & Sons.
After the Mayor and Bob Freeman speak, a who’s who of Easton movers and shakers will tell us how they did it, followed by breakouts to explore the finer details. During the panel discussion moderated by Dawn Hart, the Director of Community and Economic Development at the City of Easton, we’ll hear from Jared Mast of GEDP, Megan McBride of the Easton Public Market and the Easton Farmers Market, Kim Kmetz of Easton Main Street, Tod Auman of Dundore & Heister, Ben Scholl of Scholl’s Orchard, Jo Moranville of the Garlic Fest, Troy Reynard of Cosmic Cup and Two Rivers Brewing Company and Allison Czapp of Buy Fresh Buy Local of the Greater Lehigh Valley.
This event provides a GREAT opportunity to become inspired by the excellent work done in Easton, and hopefully take those lessons into your community.
Because The Easton Experience is so robust with lessons learned and networking and mentoring opportunities, the program will run from noon to 4 p.m. We understand that this is a time commitment, but this is also a great opportunity to become inspired and connect with like-minded people. If you cannot stay for the entire program, we encourage you to stop by for the lunch, and the Mayor’s presentation.
There is no cost to attend this event thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream.
