Voices of Poetry, which serves the Greater New Milford area, will hold a "Thanks for the Giving" poetry and music event Nov. 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

The event at St. Peter's Masonic Lodge on Aspetuck Avenue will benefit Loaves & Fishes Hospitality House, a nonprofit and non-denominational organization.

The hospitality house is looking to move from its Main Street location to another site in town and must raise capital to do so.

Participating poets will include David K. Leff, John L. Stanizzi, Steven Ostrowski, Lisa C. Taylor, Richard Close, Susan Tuz, Neil Silberblatt, Davyne Verstandig, Karen Silk and Faith Vicinanza, while participating musicians will include Duane Andrews, John Bolster, Gale B. Gardiner, Mike Latini, Don Lowe and Donald P. Hicks.

A donation of $15 per person and $20 per couple is suggested. In addition, patrons are asked to bring canned or boxed food.

Larger monetary donations will also be accepted.
