Ninety-nine members and guests enjoyed the Club’s 10th Anniversary Celebration at the Orchard on August 2nd. The orchard opened for tours to visit the planting done by our industrious orchard volunteers with guidance from Bob Norton. Karen Dale displayed the history project she compiled. The weather was beautiful and everyone enjoyed the grilled salmon and hotdogs, potluck items and strawberry shortcake.
We would like to thank Laurie at Vashon Thriftway for coordinating with us and Doug at Vashon True Value Service Center for the helpful delivery service. Carol Olsen, from Sunrise Ridge helped with extra tables and chairs. Thank you!
