The dinner was a great success!   Plan to join us next year for a similar event on September 15th - mark your calendar!

Tastes of Eastern Europe featuring local ingredients was the theme of this year's dinner, created by Chefs Erin Condo and Josh McCracken, of ECOVENTS. It was Saturday, September 16, 6 pm - appetizers and 6:30 - dinner. Music was provided by Eric Ian Farmer.

There was also a Silent Auction with many interesting items, including Amish Quilts.
