  1. Looking forward in participating in this worthy cause. Tonight, we have our signature Apple Cider Butternut Squash Soup!

  2. What a great night! Especially for Mr. Lemley, who deserves all the ‘thank yous’ we can send his way. He’s the true American Farmer…and was visibly touched by all the hoopla. ; ) Thanks to everyone who participated.
