Capes News – September 2022

Don’t Miss All the Fun!

The Bridge House (FUN!) Committee has a couple of events coming up this month that you’re going to want to add to your calendar.

  • Saturday, September 3, 2022 from 2-4pm – Potluck Picnic in the Meadow: This will be a very informal social gathering where all Capes owners (and their families and guests) are invited to meet up in the meadow for a potluck picnic. Plates, cups and silverware will be provided, but otherwise it’s a BYO event – BYO tables, chairs and/or picnic blankets, BYO drinks (whether that be adult beverages or otherwise) and BYO dish to share.
  • Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 2-4 pm – Come hear the Kitchen Maven: The Bridge House Activities Committee has invited author and cook Judi Yamada to present her journey of writing a cookbook during the pandemic. It is one of the good things that has come from the pandemic – Judith Yamada’s cookbook “Thrifty Comfort Cooking for Challenging Times.” Seeing a need to help all cooks be more efficient in the kitchen when dealing with food shortages and high prices, Yamada’s cookbook provides a welcome guide to making the most of what you have on hand. Filled with helpful tips as well as over 100 delicious recipes this cookbook is truly a comfort, and 100% of sales that will benefit our local Food Bank. Please bring a can or dry goods to donate to the Food Bank. Her book can be purchased at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. A reception will follow her lecture. [Please note: This is a limited-seating event, and spaces will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to attend, send an email to to reserve your seat today!]
