Konnarock Community Association volunteers host the Friday Night Dinner as an annual fundraiser.  For the 2nd year in a row, BRDC is excited to partner with the Independence Farmers Market www.independencefarmersmarket.org to provide high quality and locally sourced ingredients!  The meal will feature a meat or vegetarian option, plenty of local veggies, home-made baguettes, and a garden salad to die for. Home-made desserts will finish off the meal.

Dinner is by pre-paid reservation ONLY.  There will be no dinners sold at the door.
