Here it is — the Bergen Hall, the setting for Feast of Bergen.
Shelley spent part of yesterday counting all the place settings and cutlery. Today she washed it. Thank heaven for dishwashers.
The Bergen Hall has only 2 stoves, a rather limited space when you’re cooking for 80 people. So it’s a large BBQ to the rescue — Gerry & Bob picked it up this morning and unloaded it near the kitchen door.
In addition to the great meal that has been planned, we’re also showcasing some of the creative people who live in Bergen — artists, musicians, writers, publishers, photographers, a luthier, a beader, quilters — it’s a talented group.
Today much of the focus was on the table settings. Gerald Ingeveld of Double N Ranch and Judy Bargholz lay the tablecloths. Laurie and Jamie Syer came to help setting the tables in between chores at the farm.
So what does the hall look like now that we’ve finished decorating? That’s all under wraps until the guests arrive tomorrow night. 🙂
Meanwhile we still have some work to do Saturday morning. Tomorrow is also the last day of the Bergen Farmers’ Market for this season. Drop by to see us, buy some great local produce and view the outdoor decorations.
