Members of the 2014 Peach Court were presented to guests at the Palisade Chamber of Commerce’s Business-After-Hours last week.
The Wednesday evening gathering at the Sage Creations Organic Farm on East Orchard Mesa was both fragrant and friendly, with lots of lavender still in bloom, as well as other garden flowers.
The farm had just finished a busy weekend of welcoming Lavender Festival guests, and had umbrella tents set up on the lawn, refreshments, and plenty of lawn furniture for chamber members to relax and network.
The Peach Court, made up of nine beautiful girls from Palisade area schools, was introduced to the membership of the Chamber and each told a little about themselves, including their favorite ways to enjoy a Palisade peach.
We’ll be seeing them again at the Ice Cream Social on Thursday evening, August 14, when they will be officially crowned to kick off the Peach Fest weekend. A schedule of Peach Fest events may be found at http://www.palisadepeachfest.com.
