Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park

PENINSULA, Ohio (Monday, August 27, 2012) - The Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park continues its monthly Dinner in the Valley series in September with a meal inspired by French-Canadian cuisine followed by the season's first Cuyahoga Valley Heritage Series concert. Each month, the Conservancy's Dinner in the Valley features Chef Larkin Rogers, who creates a delightful meal hosted at one of Cuyahoga Valley National Park's extraordinary venues.

On Friday, September 14, the delicious Dinner in the Valley meal will be followed by a lively concert by Vishten at Happy Days Lodge. The members of Vishten have been touring their brand of new-traditional Acadian music, with a sound that is essentially Celtic, but the songs are French. The evening's events begin at 6:00 p.m.

Reservations are required and are being taken through Friday, September 7. Call 330-657-2796 ext. 121 for reservations. Pricing is $40 for members, $45 for non-members, and $12 for children ages 5-12. Price includes dinner, dessert and concert ticket. Learn more at www.conservancyforcvnp.org.
