Great Cooking Class with Pete Peterson

September 6, 2011, 5:09 pm

We were very fortunate to snag Pete Peterson, aka famous owner/chef of Tapawingo in Ellsworth, to teach a class for us at Oryana.

September 6, 2011, 4:09 pm

We had a good turnout at the general membership meeting last Thursday at Gilbert Lodge on Twin Lakes. A brief recap of the meeting: our newest board members are Karen Howie and Neill Varner.
