Braciole (For a special treat, choose braciole – a rich velvety main course and an Italian favorite. It is typically served as a special treat because the preparation is time consuming. It is a stuffed, rolled beef that’s cooked in a little bit of tomato sauce and served with pasta.) OR

Southwestern Chicken Over Cilantro-Lime Rice (For lighter fare, choose chicken prepared southwestern style and served over a light cilantro-lime rice.) OR

Vegetarian Lasagna

The main course will be served with a fresh garden salad and bread & butter.

Pecan Pie, Raspberry Chocolate Cake, Cherry Cheesecake Bars, Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, and many more.


“Time Flies” directed by Kim Dupuis
Two youthful May flies (Dakota Benedetto and Jonathan Ray) are enjoying their first date until a pompous TV nature host (Greg Pratt) shows up to teach the world about their short, lowly lives.
