Everyone is invited to submit an edible entry or just bring yourself and a dollar to have a taste and be a judge. Bring your entry to the to the Land Trust’s Big Gazebo next to the playground at 3:45 PM.  The contest and pot luck start at 4:00.  Bring a potluck dish to share and your own plate, cup and utensils. First, Second and Third place winners will be awarded certificates and their photographs and recipes will be published in the August Clarion. Kids’ games, including our world-famous watermelon seed-spitting contest, will follow. The event ends with enough time to get to your favorite fireworks display. Questions?

“When I moved to Lake Claire, I didn’t know how I would fit into this neighborhood – I needed to make new friends, build a new life. Soon I felt I was living in a real community, where people know each other by name and are involved in shared activities. Then I realized that the community is centered in the Land Trust.” – a new neighbor
