The Swenson Garden Grill & Chill happened as we dodged the rain. May showers didn’t stop the enthusiasm for an amazing display of delicious grilled appetizers by Extreme Exteriors, Rancho Loma wine, Dad’s Ice Cream and Grain Theory Beer. Tents were erected and the house and yard filled with hungry and thirsty visitors. Cindy Stevens and Lou Voit entertained the crowd with an array of wonderful Jazz music. An outside event became a mixture--part historic home and part beautiful gardens. We want to thank all the guests and visitors who joined us for a special evening.
