Food will have buffet-style, all-you-can-eat breakfasts and lunches will be served at Wheelock Dining Hall on the Acadia Campus (meal only packages will be available) but  on Saturday evening our banquet dinner will be part of the May Flavours Dinner and Auction at Acadia  that features local foods (hors d’oeuvres to desserts) prepared by chefs from various local restaurants, along with Valley wines and beer (coupon for one alcoholic drink included; bar service available).  There is a silent auction throughout the dinner, and also a live auction at the end of the meal.
