Surprisingly comfortable wooden rocker. Purchased new 13 years ago. This chair was used to rock and soothe our two babies to sleep countless times. But, they are no longer babies, and we no longer need this beautiful chair. We hope someone else can use and appreciate it.
This Finnish meal will highlight wonderful fish dishes including Finnish style home-cured salmon, fish balls in cream with carrots and dill, rye-floured battered lake fryfish. You will also be treated to mushroom soup and Karelian cheesecake with lingonberries for dessert.

Smoked Pork BBQ Feast (Serves 10-14)
How would you like to host a BBQ picnic feast for 10-14 of your friends? Wouldn't it be even better if you didn't have to do any of the cooking? I, church member and former chef, David Douglass, will prepare a traditional BBQ Pulled Pork picnic meal. This starts with my secret dry rub (Big Daddy's Butt Rub), 8 lb. bone-in pork butt, that is hard wood smoked for roughly 8 hours while I perform a wide ranging beer tasting. Once ready and delectably tender, the pork is hand pulled apart. This scrumptious BBQ delight, is accompanied with two homemade BBQ sauces. A traditional style, known as Katie Q at our home(after my daughter Kathrine). The other is a mustard style sauce. The satisfying homemade side dishes that will be prepared are baked beans, collard greens, potato salad, coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob, and corn bread. Buns will also be provided for making sandwiches. All food will be prepared off-site and delivered to the location of your choosing ready to eat. Food will be delivered in reusable/recyclable foil containers. The pork is the showcase. Some menu accommodations may be made for dietary preferences but this really is about the meat. This is NOT a fully catered event. The purchaser is responsible for plates, utensils, beverages, ice, etc. Purchaser is also responsible for CLEAN UP. Black out dates are Memorial Day weekend, July 3rd - 7th, August 1st - Dec 31st.
