The Free Outdoor Concert –benefiting the Keyport Food Pantry held on September 22nd was a great success.  Thank you to the Community Church of Keyport.  Your support was truly appreciated. for allowing the benefit to be held on their premises and to Kim Morelli and John Wysocki who worked so hard on this event.  The KMFP received non-perishable items along with a monetary donation from the event for the purchase of food.  None of this would have happened if it were not for the generosity of all who attended therefore a very special Thank You to all who made donations.
