"May you never forget those sweet hours..."

Today's dinner (August 19, 2012) was great.  We had at least 70 guests, and great food:  salmon salad, tuna salad, egg salad, garden salad, potatoe salad, a yummy pasta and veggie dish, cheeses, and ice cream and cookies, including some home-made chocolate chip cookies.  Our emcees handed out the lyrics to "Red River Valley" ("Come and sit by my side if you love me; Do not hasten to bid me adieu; But remember the Red River Valley; And the Cowboy who loved you so true..."),  and everyone sang!  Truly it was a lovely evening.  I hope you will join us next time.  Check out the updated calendar.

Pictures from the evening:  "Happy folks on line for dinner"; "Waiting for dessert the easy way and hiding from the camera lady"; "Our emcees singing 'Red River Valley'"; "Fresh salad"; "Our intrepid dishwashers" (we are so grateful for them!).
