LEE, Mass. — Chez Nous bistro's Community Night on Jan. 28-29 will support Community Health Programs with 20 percent of takeout order proceeds. 
"We're hoping to be able to give back in a big way to a critical organization in our community that's on the front line in helping everyone get through the pandemic," said Rachel Portnoy.
Orders must be placed in advance and can be picked up between 5:00 and 6:30 p.m.  
Chez Nous owners and chefs Rachel Portnoy and husband Franck Tessier will offer a classic French bistro winter menu with one menu offering: Jerusalem artichoke and cauliflower soup, followed by coq au vin: chicken braised in red wine with rice pilaf and mushrooms, with a vanilla bean creme brûlée for for dessert.
The price for dinner is $45 per order. In addition, patrons can purchase wine to go, with 30 percent of purchase price also supporting CHP.
"Never has CHP been more critical to the community than during COVID-19," Lia Spiliotes, CHP's CEO, said,  Creative fundraising like this is so meaningful to CHP as we are seeing the most urgent impacts of the pandemic. While we hope that 2021 will help us to turn a corner, we are not there yet, so we are grateful to Rachel and Franck, for again sharing their bounty to support our work."

LitNet Accepting Applicants For Scholarship For New Americans

LEE, Mass. — Literacy Network of South Berkshire (LitNet) is now accepting applications for the Matthew and Hannah Keator Family Scholarship for New Americans.
The scholarship, funded by a grant through the Matthew and Hannah Keator Family Fund, provides financial support to individuals who are ready to apply for U.S. citizenship. The financial support assists candidates in obtaining legal services during the screening and the application process as well as direct support to defray the cost of the federal naturalization application. There are six available scholarships for 2021. Acceptance of applications began on March 1, 2021. 
Scholarship recipients will be assigned a trained tutor from LitNet, who will work one-on-one with the applicant to prepare for the culmination of the naturalization process—the civics and literacy exams.  
Since the inception of the Keator Scholarship in 2019, 12 recipients have become US citizens.
