Our evening All Members Meeting took place on the beautiful lawn with a picturesque view of the Sheraton Fairplex. Executive Chef Adam Haverland spoke about the amazing food they grow and the process of going from Farm to Table. He indulged us with a five-course dinner using local, sustainable ingredients handpicked from the hotel’s own five-acre organic farm. This was truly a treat!
