Progressive Christmas Dinner
December 11, 2010


As always, this is probably one of the most favorite activities we offer each year.  It gives our local residents the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful local treasures we have here in South Bend.

Starters were served by Dawn Jones, the new Innkeeper at The English Rose.  Dawn offered a great mix of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, spiced cider, coffee and iced tea.  Her husband, Jerome, had to have picked out the most beautiful, perfectly formed tree I have ever seen.

Below are pictures of some of the guest rooms at The English Rose.

Our main course was held at The Oliver Inn, with a superb meal served by Innkeepers Alice and Tom Erlandson.  A very tasty, season appropriate Rosemary Apple Pork Tenderloin was served.

Everyone was stuffed, but how can you resist the array of desserts presented by Susan and Barry Kessler at Cushing Manor.
