Holiday Joy!

December 21, 2016

Getting in the Holiday Spirit

SWOVA held a gathering of Staff, Board and their partners to celebrate the winter holiday season whether it be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule or any other tradition.  We held a potluck at the beautiful new venue of Twig & Buoy at 321 Fernwood Road. Owners Andrea and Roberta generously offered their space for our gathering, complete with complimentary wood fired pizza, various tasty nibblies and outstanding service!  We would like to offer our sincere gratitude to Andrea and Roberta for rounding out our potluck with delicious food & drink contributions and providing so warm and welcoming a setting.  Twig & Buoy is targeting Valentine’s Day for their official Grand Opening and we encourage you to support this wonderful new business on our Island!

Whatever tradition you celebrate this holiday season, may it be filled with light and love, peace & prosperity.

Warmly,
The Staff and Board of SWOVA
