Joined by The Juniper Spoon and Traveler’s Dream on May 13th………….

We are excited to have an evening of fun planned for our May 13th event. 

 The Juniper Spoon turns food into art.  We couldn’t find a better caterer to present local food sampling.  Lali Hess will be responsible for coordinating 3 cookers with 9 different meat items to sample: greek skewers with garlic and yogurt, brats with honey dijon, and loin medallions with cranberry tarragon pesto on bread or toasts to name a few.  Locally grown greens and dessert will round out the sampling showing just how good healthful food is.

Long time family friends have offered to entertain us.  Michael Lewis, Denise Wilson, and Chance Heasty all of Traveler’s Dream will join us to set the stage.
