The Casebolts' will be hosting CCSS on Sunday, August 17 starting at 2 PM at our home on Burley Lagoon near Gig Harbor.

Members are welcome to take one of our canoes out in the Lagoon.

Wear shoes suitable for walking on the beach. A tour of the property will be given to explain both the work in progress and plans for the native plant garden, fern stumpary, vegetable garden, and orchard.

Stoneware pots suitable for house plants and small outdoor plants will be available. Each unique pot is handmade and signed by Steve Casebolt. Club members will receive a 20 percent discount.
