[- The Berry Patch/ Photo by Sherrie Kvamme THE BERRY PATCH- It was about berries, friends, laughter and fun! It was the annual New Bridge Ladies Fall Luncheon! Friends from the Pine Valley Grange, the Eagle Valley Grange, neighbors and, of course, the New Bridge Grange experienced all things good about the berry patch, from the garden to the smart phone. Walking into the Grange was special in and of itself, as the huge room had been transformed. The dining and serving tables were draped with concord grape-colored tablecloths and each table featured a festive bouquet of fresh Oregon grape, laced with lavender confetti. Each place setting included a miniature berry muffin, wrapped and tied with a bow. The door prizes were huge bouquets of lavender and purple baskets of flowers and also a basket of Oregon pancake syrup and jellies. The main course for the luncheon was a variety of salads. The much-anticipated desserts were berry cobblers with generous scoops of vanilla .ice cream. Many ladies dressed for the occasion, wearing deep purple outfits and some red to honor the red varieties of berries! Cindy Plane entertained the ladies with a list of trivia questions about berries and skillfully transitioned the trivia to "Blackberry smart phones." Laughter filled the Grange as the lessons taught everyone a few common acronyms for texting, including "AAK"-Alive and Kicking, and "CRAFT" - Can't Remember A Freaking Thing." Good times, good food and good friends.
