Celebrations of Life and Love

Celebrations of Life and Love

Hello there neighbors, friends and supporters

June was a beautiful month here on the island and the Kelleys Island Brewery hosted 2 local family parties : one a funeral for the Golias family and one 75th birthday for Moe Kaminski.

The mass at St Michael’s was just lovely. Designed and executed by the family and the priest, it held all of Joanne’s favorite parts of her weekly mass for her family and friends to participate. The pictures and the words and the time spent with the family helped us feel Joanne again here on the island that she and Bob adored. The VFW was the backdrop for some Stanley’s kielbasa and homemade recipes from the family.

The party for Moe was a surprise on race day, so it was a little bit of a finger biter to pull off; sometimes those are the best. We made a great video of the group as Moe arrived and his face and reaction to them all being there to make his day so special. It was so easy to have the food and drink available for self service and the family loved the cake supplied by Denise and the food that we made. It was easy and delicious and anything leftover went right to them for their family leftovers.

This month on the Lawn on M-W-F we will be offering Mindful Meditations, just 30 minutes of stretching and time for you to show up and put aside some time for your practice. Come enjoy the view and the community and get into a rhythm of moving your body and clearing your mind. Different leaders will come and facilitate this, so make it an event in your calendar and come practice some wellness with us.

We will be open JUNE 20 27 AND JULY 4 for our parties. We will have Island Devil and Dawg Bizkit Brown available for carry out and to enjoy at our BINGO PARTIES. We will have some free food for you to enjoy.

Come join the fun and play some games, and enjoy our beautiful view. Maybe you will want to create your family memories on our lawn sometime soon.

Cheers! Patti and Doug
