for Empty Bowls 2018
For years our dedicated Empty
Bowls attendees have told us that they wished for a less crowded and more
relaxed atmosphere at this wonderful annual event.
We heard you!!!
In 2018 we are moving to a new
home, the Forni Room at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds. This move
will give us ample, accessible and convenient parking - and will allow our
guests to relax and sit comfortably with family and friends. There
will be a small dance floor area, an expanded Silent Auction section, and
more Fair Trade and local craft vendors.
Come join us for our new & improved Empty
Bowls Supper. . . Bring your family, friends and neighbors and. . .
