The Second Annual Divine Luncheon on the Lawn will be held Saturday, July 24 from 11:30-1:30 to benefit the Westside Food Pantry and spotlight the work of the Victory Garden. Author Katie Moose will be on hand to offer tastings from her cookbooks and sign and sell her books. The most recent book entitled God's Bounty: 365 Days of Inspirational Cooking pairs biblical passages, hymns and inspirational writing with a recipe for each day of the year. Part of these proceeds will also go to the Pantry. As last year we will use herbs and edible flowers and rely on volunteers to help set up , take down, cook, chop, serve, clean, pick flowers, lend table cloths...etc. Please contact Mary Mitchell, Jean Rohrer, or Dianne McMullan as the Quietside Festival fades from your calendar.
