“Philip Hyde has a rare feeling for the medium of photography. I consider him one of the very best photographers of the natural scene in America.”
—Ansel Adams, 1971

There are few things that more aptly represent the caring fabric of our community than the regular community suppers that take place in the county.
Especially in the last several years, when times have been tough for many of us, the suppers have offered relief from hunger — not just hunger of the belly, but hunger of the heart. For many, the gathering represents an important social event, offering fellowship and camaraderie.
