Hot summer nights are a great excuse to take a break and cool down with music AND support the Council Food Pantry with a non-perishable food donation.
The Wingate Residences as Needham invite you to join them on their back patio as they gather around the fire pit.

On Sunday, September 24th Team Community Council will take to the roads of Dedham, Needham, Dover and beyond to raise funds for the Council Food Pantry and raise awareness of hunger in our community.
This will be our 5th year participating in the regional Three Squares NE Ride for Food in which time we have raised close to $100,00 for the Council Food Pantry!
Registration opens May 15, 2017. You can help make a major difference! Join us as a team rider, volunteer and/or fundraiser.
You don’t need to be an avid bike rider to participate…select from three routes; 10, 25, or 50 mile. All you need is a desire to help end hunger in our community.
In 2016, more than 350 riders supported 18 food pantries and food delivery agencies in the Greater Boston area. The regional goal for 2017 is to raise $500,000.
