What could be a more pleasant respite from the summer heat than a leisurely day trip to Skaneateles?

Ellie Rugg is organizing a day trip for us to visit two of the organic treasures of the village as well as having the opportunity to do a little window shopping (or more), what's sure to be a delightful lunch,  and a visit to the local winery.

Please RSVP for lunch by Monday, July 12. There's a handy form below for your convenience.

Leaving promptly at 8:45 am (please note change)!  We'll meet at Lowe's, 1318 Upper Front Street, Nim­mons­burg, to consolidate vehicles for the trip north. Use the lot area to the left as you enter, not those nearer the store entrance.
