Dutch Days of Summer
June 19, 2018
Make a day of it, eat at Das Dutch Haus, visit all the shops, get a free cup of Zeke’s coffee at the Inn coffee shop, taste the samples, have a fry pie, made fresh by our own Alicia Rhodes, believe me when I tell you they are melt in your mouth delicious! On Saturday listen to some folk music and enjoy the homemade ice cream, watch Margaret Wade make pottery at the wheel and buy local produce from the Huffman’s Farm Market Stand.
