“Also the beekeepers harvested almost 700 pounds of local honey this year, and Yvonne will have jars available for sale,” Brand added. “The Satellites will have taste samples for all guests.”

Those who attend may bring their own lunches to the free event, or they may pay $8 for a box lunch that will include a beverage and specialty dessert.

Cash or check payable to the Satellites Auxiliary will be accepted. Complimentary valet service will be available for the event at the Orthopaedics’ entrance.
