This month’s Free Soup and Game Night at the Hope and Olive restaurant will benefit the Montague Common Hall.
The hall by the village square in Montague Center was until recent years the Montague Grange, and continues to host events and house historical documents.
The Greenfield restaurant at the corner of Hope and Olive streets holds a monthly fundraiser with free soup and bread and donations sought for a different organization each month. The doors will be open from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday with a cash bar, free soup and bread, a bake sale and a raffle. Organizers note that Greenfield’s free holiday parking in town lots is in effect.
Organizers say that while volunteers have been happy to roll up their sleeves for painting and yard work, the building needs significant upgrades including handicapped access, insulation, drainage in the basement and energy-efficient lighting.
