Surprise Visit

Mary Dodge Family

The day before we opened Sept. 7, these four visitors happened to come by the Sandhills Woman’s Exchange. May have been the memory of their grandmother, MARY DODGE,a past President of the Exchange, that brought them home to the cabin. They were given one of our historical calendars and encouraged to return another day for lunch and gift shopping. Shown left to right: wife and Richard Dodge, grandson; and Cathryn Rozzi, granddaughter and her husband.

Hello Ladies

Writing to express thanks for the delicious food you prepare and serve with “top drawer” style. Your gracious hospitality invites return visits to the Woman’s Exchange.
Your Lemon Meringue “melt-in-the-mouth: pie is out of this world, and who needs to go to Cape Cod for exceptional clam chowder?

Our visit on Ground Hog day is memorable. Thank you for the homemade cookie extras. If I were certain on the spelling of quiche, I would thank you for that too.

Habitat for Humanity

The Habitat for Humanity oldies girlfriends love the cabin for their occasional lunch, wine and gossip.


Delightful Surprise

What a delightful surprise!
The Cabin --the show-rooms newly remodeled and sparkling, a masterful cook, outstanding food served by some of the Villages most gracious ladies (all volunteers.) And a collection of really interesting and appealing products.

We got introduced yesterday.

A daughter visiting from California.

We stopped at the Cabin for lunch. Hadn’t been there since last fall. Was amazed at the transformation.

The show-room area had been enlarged, re-fitted, and made into a space with the look and feel of a cheerful little boutique -- all the more surprising to be found inside a historic cabin.

The lunch room can’t be any larger than it used to be, but it somehow feels that way and is bright and comfortable.

My daughter, who knows about this stuff, thought the leek soup and the artichoke-and-asparagus crepe were, direct quote,“fantastic.”

I have no idea how you managed all this, ladies, but it was great. Hope you have a super year. You should. The Cabin is a little jewel right in the heart of the Village.
