Musical entertainment will once again be provided by the Blue Hen Jazz Trio, headed by local favorite Sam Nobles.

Check back in May to see what delicious treats will be served this year.

Last year’s food included a pasta bar, with a chef creating made-to-order masterpieces before your very eyes. Attendees also enjoyed chicken with goat cheese, crab stuffed mushrooms and asparagus in phyllo. The featured drink was…chocolate martinis! Beer, wine and sodas were also available.
