Greetings on this spectacular fall Monday morning! A big “merci” to all who came out to my estate sale over the weekend. We had the privilege of working in a home with a gorgeous view of Woahink Lake and were treated to lots of wildlife – wish I’d had my camera with me!

Upcoming Events

11/15 Autumn High Tea – that’s THIS coming Saturday! We’re taking reservations for our 11:30 seating and would LOVE to have you join us!

11/15 Jean Kimball’s 90th Birthday Bash – also this Saturday! We’ll be hosting an open house from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. for this dear and beautiful lady – please join us for cake and ice cream! In lieu of gifts, may we suggest a donation to Siuslaw Outreach Services in Jean’s name, or bring a canned food item for our Food Share basket (two of Jean’s favorite local charities).

11/22 Mon Ami’s 14th Annual “Pounding” to benefit Food Share … we’ll be at Grocery Outlet from 9-1 with Wayne Sharpe from KCST Radio and Woody and the gang from Grocery Outlet accepting your donations of boxed, canned, and/or frozen food to fill the pantry at Food Share in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Did you know that this event has raised over 72,000 pounds of food since we first began???!!! Wow!

Stay tuned … Many of you have met Chantelle Meyer, who works in our shop on Thursday & Saturday. Chantelle’s brother, Willi Meyer, is the squad leader of the 2-162 Infantry Batallion recently deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan. I have a very special connection with these kids – my family adopted the Meyer family when Chantelle & Willi’s grandparents immigrated to the United States 55 years ago; and just like their Oma & Opa were to me as a child, I have been their “auntie” since they were born. There are currently six young men serving in Willi’s squad and the gang at Mon Ami has decided to send each of them a little “Christmas from the Coast.” I’ll be getting their names, sizes, and any special requests from Willi over the next few days and will be posting that as soon as it is available. If you’d like to “adopt” a soldier from Oregon and make his Christmas a little more joyful, here’s your chance!

Soup: Fresh Pea & Carrot

Savory Stuffed Sweet Red Bell Peppers

wonderful community!

Wishing you Grace & Plenty,
