Bright Spots on a Rainy Day

For the second time this summer, Mary Steinbrecher, owner of the famous Bow Tie Tavern sponsored a fundraiser for a worthwhile cause. Today it was the 12th Annual Motorcycle Poker Run, that began with breakfast earlier this morning and finished late this afternoon with a chicken barbecue. About 200 bikers participated, with the proceeds going to National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

A third fundraiser is already planned for September 12, with proceeds going to Senior Meals on Wheels.

This is a great time to visit one of the many farm markets in Alpine Township. To get a list of farm markets on the Ridge please visit Fruitridge Markets,

The variety of vegetables and fruit is great!

How fresher can it get?

The apples look fantastic already

So do the peaches

There are plenty od shoppers on hand despite the rain or threat of rain
