John and Susan welcome you to their family business. They began hosting banquets in 2007 to fulfill a dream they had often discussed over the previous 30 years. They have developed a reputation of preparing nutritional, savory, good tasting foods made from fresh, wholesome ingredients. The bakery and café was added in 2013 since their clients were asking where they could purchase the delicious breads and desserts that Susan made for the banquets they hosted.
There will be some changes to the RiverSong venue as we enter the fall 2019 season. John and Susan will step back from the day to day operation and are speaking with people interested in hosting and cooking for events. We will be working along side them for a period of time with the hope that they can take over the banquets and the café/bakery. We are open to discussing options for our hall use during this period of transition.
spring is here.….
The osprey pair have returned and have been actively re-building the nest and chasing away other ospreys that would also like to nest next to our parking lot. Numerous times through the day you can see them carrying nesting materials and/or fish to the nest. I anticipate that the courtship display put on by the male will occur in the next week or so and, based on the past two years, she will be incubating an egg in early May.
A pair of wood ducks have been hanging around our stream/wetland area over the past few weeks. I am hoping they will become resident. They are such colourful creatures.
Big day for birders!
If you are interested in birdwatching, eBird is encouraging people on a global scale to get out on Saturday May 4 for a BIG DAY. The idea is to tabulate the many different species of birds seen that day and then report this to the eBird website. I wish to see how many different species we and our customers can see at RiverSong that day. I will put out a whiteboard to mark down your sightings and then send in the sightings at the end of the day. Last year, I did this on my own in between customers and came up with 35 species, adding one (Nashville warbler) to my life list. I even got a close-up photo of it.
There is much to be appreciated in the great outdoors at this time of year.
Mark your calendars…….
