Doris Rufli’s regular correspondence for the Forest Grove area

By Doris Rufli

Once a year since its launch in the summer of 2015, the Dandelion Kitchen opens its doors exclusively to the Forest Grove Walking Group for a special lunch and social get-together.

So, after their customary walk starting at 11 a.m. (usually meeting at the fire hall), members and their partners gathered at the Forest Grove restaurant at midday for a delicious a la card meal. The atmosphere was cheerful and laughter came easy.
