|Pink lemonade cake with lemon curd from Darling Coffee was delicious!|
Cake and conversation at the memorial last Saturday was a great summery way to celebrate Julia and her gift of the land that became Isham Park in 1912 and to bring the series to a close.
Kimberly, a Darling Coffee baker, actually created a new recipe for Julia's brithday. We cut into it and it was largely gone before we thought to photograph it. It was delightfully light with a strawberry filling (seen tumbling out of the last bit). Thank you Kimberly and Darling Coffee!
Thank you also so much to the presenters for the VIP Art Stroll 2012 series: Susan De Vries, Director at Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, Cole Thompson, "Lost Inwood" co-presenter and author of "myinwood.net", NYC Parks Ranger Martha Brodylo, Harlan Pruden, and Don Rice, "Lost Inwood" co-presenter. To see snapshots of the tours, go to each of the blog posts for June 2012.
Since It's My Park Day on May 19th, a single tireless volunteer has gone out almost each weekday morning at 7:30am to work in Isham Park with me. The next post will reveal some of the work we have done in Isham Park...
