The fundraiser dinner to support more youth programming for the Childrens Forest was a great evening and successful event! Thanks for showing up and letting our team of 20 youth cook and serve you! Finding all those white shirts was a task in itself
A special thanks to the Gorge store and the Natural Food Co-op for selling our tickets and not complaining about the last-minute-chaos involved! Lovena secured most of the food donations, without that the dinner could not have happened. Thanks Tamara for all that salmon, Andrea for the roast,Mary Clare for the basil oil, Conrad for the mint and sugar, Odette and Katie for asparagus and such beautiful flowers and Henry for that big bag of carrots(and how is it possible to grow such humongous carrots?!)
Thanks Diane for bringing the music, Rose at the Floathouse who let me borrow last minute items, Tammy for being gracious by letting me use the oven and other flurries of requests the day of, Mary for coming early chop!chop!, and Suejohn who rocked it to the end...mopping floors and vacuuming. (Need help just ask a busy person!)
And of course there are the regulars involved: Sabina, Christine, and Connie. Our youth are SO lucky to have these woman and mentors in their lives. These are the moments that make this island so cool and groovy.
