Granary Gourmet Dinner

The dinner was Saturday, September 15th - and was a lovely evening with great music and food.  Next year the dinner is planned for September 14th, or we'll have a new dining event - wait and see!

A Rustic Italian Gourmet Dinner featuring local ingredients was the theme of this year's dinner, created by Chefs Erin Condo and Josh McCracken, of ECOVENTS.  6 pm - appetizers and 7:00 - dinner. Music was provided by MJD Music Project, guitar jazz with Mick and Jazz Dennis. 

There also was a Silent Auction with many interesting items.
