Gallery Open House

 Despite the winter like weather we had a great turn-out for the Annual Open House. Everyone enjoyed the new look, new art/crafts, door prizes, food and the best of all seeing friends who were out of town over the winter.

Garden Gourmets

Our next gathering will be on April 25 at St. John's Hall, 5pm.
 I thought "Bring Spring" would be a hopeful theme.  Can you believe all the snow!!
 We're going to wish Spring into coming with our fun and healthy Spring dishes even though it looks more like a winter wonderland out there.  Maybe in two weeks most of the snow will have melted.
I hope you can join us for another evening of great food, friends and conversation.  If you would like to demonstrate or tell us about a special recipe, just let me know.  Demos always welcome!

Can't bring a dish this time? That's just fine, we'd enjoy your company and there's always enough to go around.  Bring friends and neighbors too. Hope to see you and if you can, please let me know if you'll be coming.  Ruth Craig, 644-3534.

Garden Gourmet

 Hi Happy Cooks and Eaters:  Hope your Holidays were nice and your new year is beginning happily.

It's good to be back with you in the UP. We will gather again on Thursday, January 24, 5 to 7:00, in St. John's Hall.
 Our theme for the New Year will be New recipes and dishes.  If you can, try
 out a new recipe to share with us...or one you haven't shared yet.  Be
 daring!  It's fun to use us guinea pigs for something new!  We're friendly
 tasters, kindly critics and like it all!  If you aren't able to cook this
 time, please join us for the food and fellowship with great people.
 I hope to see you there.  Bring friends and neighbors.
 Any questions, just give me a call (644-3534).   Ruth
