Boy, could he make that violin sing!


Violinist Johnny Neil gave us an outstanding show on Friday night at our "Wine, Cheese, and Music" event. Trained as a classical violinist, Johnny is equally proficient in classical music and good ole cowboy foot-stompin tunes. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the violin and it's history. What was scheduled as a one hour performance turned into an hour and a half....and nobody was ready to go home even then. Johnny's fingers lightly danced along the strings as he created music that ranged from selections that made you dreamy to sad to full of joy. He has had an amazing career, from playing with symphonies, to western bands, to appearing in movies. If you missed this event, you really missed something special!

Supper Night at LAC

It was a great party!

Give us a good assortment of delicious soups and a glass of wine (or two or three) and we will definitely be in a party mood. Add in the incredible talents of magician Jim Wright and the evening is sure to be spectacular. Our wine and soup tasting event is quickly turning into an annual affair. Many of those attending had joined us last year and they said they could hardly wait for it this time. People arrived early and stayed late - there was lots of laughter, "tasting" of the goodies, and rousing conversation. One of the most fun things to watch was the expression on faces as Jim performed his magic - lots of "Oh my gosh" and "How did he do that??"
