Potatofest returns with loaded baked potatoes

 You can create the baked potato of your dreams at the third annual Baked Potatofest hosted by the Breakfast Exchange Club of Nashua on Thursday, April 20, at the Nashua Senior Activity Center. 

The fundraiser, which will support programs for Nashua-area seniors, will feature baked potatoes with a variety of toppings, plus beverages and a special dessert. 
“I think potatoes are a staple of everyone’s diet,” Beth Todgham, club president, said. “With all the different toppings, you can make a real meal out of it, and you can make it personal with the toppings you like.” 
Each attendee will be provided one baked potato that they can bring up to the volunteer potato-assemblers and have it loaded with the toppings of their choosing. This year’s Potatofest will feature seven options; broccoli, chili, cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, green onions and black olives. 
You can sit at one of the tables in the dining area and eat your baked potato at the event, or you can have your potato packed up and take it to-go. Todgham said most people stay and enjoy the social atmosphere. 
“The idea is that you can come and chat with family and neighbors and get to know each other better,” she said. “That’s one of the nicest things about the event. It’s very casual and fun to socialize.” 
Additionally, the event will feature a door prize drawing and a white elephant raffle for new and gently used household items and gifts, with tickets at $5 for a set of 25. 
Todgham said Potatofest has been getting more popular each year and that, to her knowledge, it’s the only event of its kind in the Nashua area. 
“I think the potato idea is unique, and people look forward to it when they hear that we’re doing it again” she said. “It’s hard to come up with something different [for a fundraiser] but I think we really found our niche with this one.”
