Thick, iced slices of cake are an essential part of birthdays, holidays, and other special events, yet some people must sit out the festivities due to allergies and intolerances. The bakers at D'Arcey's Catering, Bakeshoppe and Nutrition Services help hosts include all guests thanks to an on-staff dietician and designated gluten-free kitchen able to accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions. Using local ingredients, the bakers craft flaky pies filled with fruit and cream interiors, tiered cakes with several varieties of gooey fillings, and cupcakes with flavors more avant-garde than John Cage’s pantry. Alongside their baked goods, chefs craft a full menu of catering dishes that can serve as a prelude to their custom desserts.
Doggy Clips’ staff cleans and grooms dogs of all sizes and breeds. From haircuts to nail trimming, ear cleaning, and gland care, the grooming-school graduates gently and thoroughly bathe canines from the top to bottom. Dye jobs, nail polishing, and show patterns are also available.
Serenity Stables & Event Facility’s five acres of land are dotted with a regulation-size arena, covered stalls, and indoor facilities, creating a horse-riding haven for equine enthusiasts of all ages.

Serenity Stables also offers full boarding services and rents out their facilities for dances, musical events, birthdays, and interventions for oats-addicted unicorns.
