Imagine dining in the beauty of Lawrence Valley, surrounded by green fields and foliage, with a playlist of birdsong.

We are offering a six-course meal paying homage to the early summer season, complete with beverages.

Long communal tables will be set, and service will include tasting platters.

Bill & Ann Dickie, with an amazing group of volunteers, are pleased to offer this experience to 24 guests.  Final Date for reservations is June 23rd.

This is a “by donation” event.  Full information will be sent upon request.

You Load ~ Dave O'Hara

After a short retirement, one week, I am back in business.  I have purchased a 14' dump trailer, and can take you all your soil and gravel needs. Plus I can haul all your junk and rubbish away.  

Sandpiper found it difficult to travel to the Island so I am happy to return.  I missed talking to everyone on the ferry.
