Bread of Life announces appreciation dinner

CROSSVILLE — Director Ralph Reagan wants everyone to mark their calendars for Friday, June 6, starting at 5:30 p.m., to attend the Bread of Life Community Appreciation Dinner at the Cumberland County Community Complex. The food will be prepared and catered by Scarlett Catering. The cost of the dinner will be a “free will offering” and will be collected during the event.

The most important part of this dinner is for the general public, businesses and area churches to learn more about the mission of the Bread of Life and to be able to ask questions, one-on-one, to the various volunteers and staff that will be attending the event.

Reagan will provide information on all the activities that took place last year and update everyone on the progress of the medical/dental clinic. As many already know, the Bread of Life Rescue Mission is the only ministry in Cumberland County that covers most of the needs of the homeless, the poor and the desperate by working closely with various partner agencies in the community. 

Come alone or bring a party of eight and have your own table. It is important to call the Bread of Life Rescue Mission at 707-0031, or email by May 30 to reserve a table and to provide them with an accurate number of dinners to order.

During the program, attendees will learn about plans for expanded counseling, referrals and job training in addition to testimonies from those who were helped through this valued and necessary program. They can also learn about how the Bread of Life houses, feeds, clothes and endeavors to help the poorest of the poor beyond their material needs. Let’s make their mission your mission. There are always various volunteer positions available throughout the mission. To learn more about the Bread of Life Rescue Mission and other upcoming events, visit the website at or call 707-0503.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
