On a bright, sunny Saturday morning recently, John and Joyce Bittner of Fossil Creek Creamery in Strawberry closed down their business for the day and, with the help of several talented chefs and vendors, went to work creating magic. The Third Annual Farm Dinner was an elegant evening that raised an astounding $5,000 for wildfire prevention and trails in the Pine/Strawberry fuel break. We can’t thank John and Joyce enough for their generosity and their commitment to our community. And to Chef Akos Szabo, Chef Mark Hamilton, Chef Tracy Dempsey, Ray Stephens, Julie La Magna and all the others who helped to make this event such a success — thank you.
Generosity abounds in the Rim Country, as exemplified by three local bands, Bucket List, Trouble in Paradise and the John Scott Band, who donated their talents to the recent Fire on the Rim Mountain Bike Race fund-raiser and were inadvertently not recognized for their outstanding contributions. Thank you, guys!
