Octuberfest Honors Potatoes and the Human Spirit’s Ability to Move Forward Beyond Adversity
Each year the People of Progress plan a fun-filled evening and at the very end after closing time, we often have to encourage a few last lingerers to leave because they are having such nice conversations but the kitchen is cleaned up and we’re done for the year!
Evenings have featured wonderful folk music concerts with Bay Area singer songwriters Jay Howlett, Rolf Wyer and Chuck McCabe, comedy, potato decorating activities, cowboy songs with potato lyric sing-a-longs, a Doni Chamberlain-Greenberg cooking demonstration, historical potato quiz, arcade potato toss games and who knows what we’ll come up with next time …
