$20 is a bargain for such a worthwhile event. I love wine and cheese festivals and this one sounds like it will have a great view to enjoy as well.

This sounds like an event that would be a lot of fun!!! I remember driving to see relatives as a child through that area - there were 3 bears (stuffed) on the side of the road someplace (no idea where) on the way to Afton from Connecticut.

Roy I am sure it was fun, a real pity I could not be in two places at the same time.

Claudette - The location alone was worth $20.00

Barbara-Jo you would have had fun.

Diane with all the cutbacks more communities will have to do things like this to maintain their public spaces.

Hannah more than I have time to write about, I do think it is worth while to bring these events to the attention of the public.

Jo-Anne that is so sweet, with encouragement like this I better keep posting :)

Jennifer, $20.00 is pretty cheap for what you get.  Hope you guys get a good turn out and raise lots of money.

Yummy - I love wine & cheese festivals.  Too bad we don't have enough of these around here.  It sounded like it would be lots of fun.
