FISH Meeting this Thursday, 11/5/15

Interested in FISH??

Come spend some time with some new friends.   You are the reason we have this group.

This Thursday 3-5 with kids.  We will have a cheese making demo, cheese curds and more by my goat farming friend.  Also vanilla extract, 5 minute artisan bread (so,so easy), and someone will take home a kombucha making starter kit.  (What is kombucha?- a traditional homemade drink with some claimed health benefits; liver detoxification, improved pancreas function, increased energy, better digestion, improved mood, kills candida, helps nutrient assimilation.)

Kids can play four square, baseball, bubbles and play dough outside.  Vivian may also bring her pony Montana up if there is interest.  Inside we have ping pong and pool for twelve and up, toys in the basement, board games, and thanksgiving crafts- pine cone turkeys, headdresses, paper mayflower.

Please call Kamiyo if you have any questions 293 9339.

December 3rd we will meet at our regular time (7pm) without kids and have a cookie exchange.  Make three dozen cookies, bring empty trays and fill them with an assortment that you can then set out for company or take to parties.

We will meet at the Culbertson house but would love to have so many at our meetings that we need a new meeting place.  Please let us know if you have topics you'd like to see on our agenda.
