The next event will be held on
Tuesday, October 27 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Beverages and coffee will be available
by donation; bring your own snacks. A
donation at the door of $5 will be ap-
preciated by these talented individuals.
The singer/songwriters for this event are
Ray Cerbone, Thomas Hoffmaster, David
Hintz and Songs On Sanibel organizer
Cerbone is one of the founding
members of The Americana Music
Association, a Fort Myers-based group
formed to promote original music. He
has performed at The ACMA and local
house concerts as well as folk festivals in
Barberville, Eustis and Sarasota, where he
won the open stage competition.
Hintz has been performing and writing
songs since 1970. After a 25 year hiatus
from performing, David is back at it
again. He has opened for Grant Peeples,
8 Ball Aitken, John Eddy and has toured
extensively in the United States.
Hoffmaster has played guitar and sung
for over 35 years with multiple bands as
well as on radio and television. However,
he feels that being in those bands has
kept him from fully expressing himself
with his music.
Plein, a native of Fort Myers, carries
a traditional sound pulled from the land
itself. With poignant lyrics and soulful
melodies, he demands the attention of
any listener who’s been given ears to
hear. He continues to sing at the Island
Hopper Songwriter Fest and helps orga-
nize events at The Community House.
A $5 donation for these musicians at
the door is appreciated. Assorted bever-
ages will be available by donation. Bring
your own snacks.
The next Community House potluck
dinner will be held on Wednesday,
October 28 beginning at 6 p.m.
Artisan chocolatier Tracy Peck creates
incredible flavor pairings at her Naples-
based business. “Artisan” means that the
product is hand made in small batches
rather than machine mass-produced.
An artisan is one that has creatively
conceived, designed and executed the
making of a product, which, in this case,
are delectable chocolate barks, truffles
and other specialty confections created by
Once Upon A Bean.
Peck will bring taste samples of three
levels of chocolate – white, milk and dark
– while guiding attendees through her
tasting map. Learn about cacao and how
it is sourced from different cacao growing
