Oktoberfest Cookout

With a quick mention of the words: grilling, sausage and sauerkraut, (and don’t forget lederhosen), you should automatically begin thinking of Oktoberfest! Our Oktoberfest cookout is the last of the season. Summer is flying by and it is hard to believe that September is almost here.

Scheduled for Wednesday, September 20th, two days before the official start of Fall, this years feast will be fantastic, as usual! As always, friends and family are invited. Just call our front desk at 784-2900 and sign up your guests. Take a look at our menu on page four.

2017 Fall Craft Fair Update

It’s never too early to start planning for a craft fair.  The date for Schooner’s craft fair this year is Saturday, October 21st.

If you would like to reserve a table or two to display your crafts, for yourself, a friend or family member, just let Giselle Prevost know. She will be happy to sign you up and give you all the details! Stop by and see her or you may call her at extension 135.

Also, We have a raffle going on featuring some lovely handmade items. Posters showing these items can be seen in the elevators or you may pick up a copy at Sue’s desk. The drawing will be held on our craft fair day, Saturday, October 21st.
