Pure Fun & Fellowship!
The Spaghetti Supper & Talent Show on May 14th was a spectacular success. An overflow crowd enjoyed a meal complete with, of course, spaghetti accompanied with all organic trimmings. The “talent show” following included many talents that are just too hard to describe. Our appreciation is extended to Lauren Fortuna, her husband, Frank Marshall and their children, Genevieve and Louisa who were the both the brains and brawn of the event.
Join Jackie Dobrinska for Herbal Drinks
…Thursday, May 30th at 1 pm
Did you know that the cocktail was invented to make “bitters” more palatable? Join us and learn not only about the herbal histories of some of your favorite spirits but make some refreshing summertime herbal drinks using fresh plants from the garden. Note: we will be making non-alcoholic beverages, but you will learn how to make them “hard” for your next party. Join us on May 30th at 1 pm at The Lord’s Acre – Joe Jenkin’s Road in Fairview. A suggested donation of $10 (which helps cover the costs of materials) is asked, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Contact Jackie at [email protected] for more details.

Living An Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey
…The Jubilee! Book Discussion Group will begin our new book Monday, June 17, 1:30 – 3 pm
With his trademark eloquence and insight, Dr. James Hollis offers Living an Examined Life to inspire you toward a life of personal authority, integrity, and fulfillment. “It is my hope that this book will be a tool to recover your respect for that which abides deeply within,” writes Dr. Hollis. “You will not be spared disappointment or suffering. But you can know the depth and dignity of an authentic journey, of being a real player in your time on this turning planet, and your life will become more interesting, taking you deeper than ever before.”
