  • Add a side dish that’s easy with potatoes recipe

     Every year,in June, the meeting of our Caby M. Froman Club is held at Harmony Landing Country Club in Goshen. 

    It is always such a fun time for us because we get all dressed up, wear our hats and have a wonderful luncheon — a day out with the girls. This year’s event was even more fitting for the hats due to the fact that our program of study for this year is thoroughbred horse racing in Kentucky. Our head table was a beautiful array of ladies all dressed in pink and wearing beautiful pink hats.
