Bringing the community together through free meals and free concerts

It has been two weeks since the <span class=”aBn”><span class=”aQJ”>Noon</span></span> Concerts in the Logan Tabernacle started and Gary Poore, chairman of the Logan Tabernacle Concert and Lecture Series committee, said more people have attended this year.

He said there is great talent each day, including a program each <span class=”aBn”><span class=”aQJ”>Monday</span></span> performed by Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre.

On KVNU’s Crosstalk program <span class=”aBn”><span class=”aQJ”>Thursday,</span></span> Poore said the concerts are sponsored by Cache Community Connections, an inter-faith group organized after the 9-11 terror attacks to bring the community together.

Sara West, public affairs director for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Northern Utah region, said Cache Community Connections also sponsors “Loaves and Fishes.” The event is a community meal held the first and third Saturdays of every month at <span class=”aBn”><span class=”aQJ”>11:30 a.m.</span></span> at the First Presbyterian Church.

“It is free for the entire community. Anyone is welcome,” West explained. “We encourage people to come, get a meal, then sit down with somebody that you don’t know and get to know that person. Meet new people. That’s what the whole thing is about, just meeting new people and building friendships.”

In June, a “Loaves and Fishes” meal will be held Saturday, June 7 and June 21. For more information, visit <a href=”” target=”_blank”></a>.
