I'm here to tell you that the town was jumping last weekend during the Craft Fair. The weather was very cooperative, which was a huge bonus. Serving lunch at the Café was also very successful. Thanks to our AMVETS and all the volunteers for all their hard work.
Make sure and put Saturday, June 20, on the calendar. That's the date of the Second Annual Ryderwood Sock Hop. DJ Steve ("Elvis") Smith will be spinning our 50's & 60's favorites from 1-5 p.m. and there will be some special Door Prizes. Plan to put on your favorite jitterbug outfits and come out to Ryderwood for a fun afternoon. Plan to stay for the Social Club Potluck at 5. I'm sure a grand time will be had by all!
