Once the dinner bell rings, guests will head to the buffet to enjoy a tasty barbecue dinner courtesy of Miss Lily’s Café & Catering with tasty side dishes created by Tremont’s own chef, Dave Osborne and his staff.
Special guests for the evening include several teachers who bring students to Tremont, naturalist certification graduates, Tremont volunteers and others who support our mission of connecting people and nature. During dessert, a few of these dedicated individuals will be sharing their “Tremont experience” stories with the group.
Seating for this fundraising dinner is limited, so those who want to attend should call (865) 448-6709 now or go to Tremont’s web site www.gsmit.org/homecoming.html to make reservations.
