Our Biggest Social Event of the Year: 
It was anyone’s guess whether or not the weather would hold out for our annual Harvest Dinner. Days and days of rain had been forecast. It turned out to be a just a chilly, somewhat windy day. But it didn’t impede our celebration. And what a celebration is was! There was food, food and more food. It was a record turnout and everyone had a great time. Thanks to all those who volunteered their time, talents and culinary expertise! And thanks to all of you who took time out of your business schedules to participate. What a way to close the summer and welcome autumn.

A great time was had by those who attended what may be the first ever yoga practice on the beach in Kasson Grove (correct me if I’m wrong.) Who knows, this could be the beginning of something wonderful!

It wasn’t about how well we did. It was about what we each of us experienced ourselves.
