We had a great time as always. The Rotarians always make us feel so special with great hospitality and wonderful food. We get to see so many people that we haven't seen in awhile and look forward to a wonderful time every year.

The tradition began 30 years ago by my mom and dad when my grandma lived at Kottinger Place. It started as a way to get her friends and neighbors together and for our family to bless them. Then mayor Ken Mercer was always a huge help and Joanie Fields kept the menu and food prep in order. It is so great to see Joanie still actively involved! What an honor to have seen this tradition grow. Thank you to the Rotary Club who gladly assumed the responsibility and grew the event to the huge success that it is now every year. This is an amazing community of generous people.
