Many Thanks to all who made last night’s Fowl Supper such a wonderful time and such a success! Thanks to all who contributed in any way, all who attended, all who invited guests, and all who worked. Special thanks to Alison Fryza and the Fowl Supper Committee for all your amazing efforts. Not only do you organize a huge fundraiser, but you coordinate a great time of community and an opportunity for the offering of hospitality.
