    6A COTTAGE GROVE SENTINEL March 11, 2015
Local couple surprises
guests with wedding
The Cottage Grove Sentinel
ut-of-town family and
friends of Cottage Grove’s
Amber Southey and Phil Miller
met at Stacy’s Covered Bridge
Restaurant on Saturday to make
plans for the couple’s July wed-
ding. Little did the guests know,
however, just how far the plans
had already progressed.
Southey said 24 of her and her
husband’s closest friends and fam-
ily came to Stacy’s, with but a few
in attendance aware of the actual
reason for their meeting. After
everyone had arrived, Stacy’s bar
manager Tyler Bolton, a friend of
the couple, read the day’s dinner
specials, then revealed a huge sur-
“Also you all are here for a wed-
ding!” Bolton told the shocked
crowd, which then proceeded to
serve as witnesses for what South-
ey (now Amber Miller) called a
“short, hilarious ceremony.”
“It was a new one for me, for
sure,” Bolton said of the ceremo-
ny, one of a dozen or so he’s per-
formed free-of-charge for friends
over the last decade. “It was hi-
larious to see the reactions of
people who must have wondered,
‘Why is the bartender saying these
Bolton said that perhaps the
most challenging aspect of the
surprise ceremony was keeping it
under wraps for three weeks.

For the newly married Millers,
the surprise came about as a way
to affordably bring family from
out-of-town to their wedding.

Local nursery plans
grand re-opening
March 22
he owners of Fern Hill Nursery, a local community
business, announced this week the grand re-opening
of their businses on Sunday, March 22. Founder Devon
Bonady has teamed up with her husband, Brian Basor, in
an attempt to reinvigorate the permaculture nursery as a
family business.
Bonady’s experience with fruiting shrubs and perennial
vegetables is now paired with Basor’s expertise in botany,
native plant communities and organic nursery production.
The Nursery still offers the many edible, medicinal, and
native plants it sold previously, Bonady said, as well as
new species and varieties.
In 2015, their selection includes perennial vegetables,
native wildfl owers, medicinal and culinary herbs, berry
bushes, and more. They propagate their own plants from
the land at Fern Hill Botanical Sanctuary. All plants are
grown without the use of synthetics and with the best of
care for healthy, vigorous growth.
The open house and plant dale at Fern Hill Nursery
and Botanical Sanctuary is open to the public on Sunday,
March 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Fern Hill Nursery and Botanical Sanctuary also sells
plants at the Saturday Lane County Farmers Market on
8th and Oak in Eugene, at select plant sales, at on-site
open houses and by appointment. Its website at www. can provide more details.
Master Preserver
recruits sought
The OSU Extension Service
in Lane County is accepting
applications for the 2015 Mas-
ter Food Preserver Volunteer
(MFP) Training Program, which
is starting its 35th year in Lane
County. The program trains and
certifi es volunteers in all areas
of food preservation including
food safety. The volunteers se-
lected into the program receive a
minimum of 40 hours of hands-
on training in food preservation,
safety and food storage.
The cost of the eight-week
training program is $175, which
includes the training, supplies,
and a resource notebook. This
year’s classes will be held on
Mondays from 9:30 a.m.–4
p.m. beginning from April 13
through June 8 at the Commu-
nity of Christ Church, 1485 Gil-
ham Road in Eugene.
LTD route review
In 2014, LTD gathered input
from employees, customers, and
the general public in developing
system improvements as part of
its Annual Route Review (ARR)
process. More than 2,000 com-
munity members gave input and
offered suggestions about what
they thought would make LTD’s
service better for the commu-
nity. Overwhelmingly, it was
said that more frequent service,
increased late night service, an
increase in how often the buses
come, adding limited airport
service, and adding back the
Student Transit Pass Program
were the top priorities. Based
on this input, LTD Service Plan-
ning staff has crafted a service
package that addresses many of
those requests, and LTD’s Board
of Directors will hold two pub-
lic hearings on proposed chang-
es before a fi nal decision on the
recommendations is made on
April 15. Everyone is encour-
aged to come to the public hear-
ings and offer their opinions and
suggestions on the proposed
changes: Wednesday, March
18, 5:30 p.m. – Eugene Library/
Bascom-Tykeson Room, 100 W.
10th Ave., Eugene and Monday,
April 6, 5:30 p.m. – Eugene Li-
brary/Bascom-Tykeson Room,
100 W. 10th Ave., Eugene.
