Notes from the vineyard
I know many of you are sick and tired of seeing the snow, the gray clouds and having to deal with the colder temperatures. But as I mentioned in last week’s column there are some sure signs that Spring is around the corner.
First, aside from it being pancake breakfast season it is also Girl Scout Cookie Season! As the Girl Scout Troop Leader for the 3rd graders at James A. Garfield Elementary this is an exciting time for the girls – taking inventory, learning to manage cookie booths and, of course, raising money for a goal! But with this responsibility comes a lot of cookies which is what makes this next event so special!
Candlelight Winery is pleased to announce that we will have our first Ladies Night on Thursday, March 21st from 6-9pm. Throughout the evening we will be pairing Girl Scout cookies with some of our favorite wines while you shop vendors from Magnabilities, Scensty, Miche and Dove Chocolate! Along with cookie sampling we’ll have a 50/50 raffle and door prizes.
Not sure if cookies, shopping and wine can bring you out of the winter doldrums? How about an Easter Egg Hunt for the adults? Thats right, an Easter Egg hunt for the adults (must be at least 21 years of age to join us)!! The egg hunt will be held on Saturday, March 23rd from 6 – 10pm and will be held outdoors rain or shine(dress appropriately)! Over 400 eggs will be hidden in the woods and lawn area so bring your own basket and flashlight to collect as many eggs as you can.
Event starts at 6pm, with egg hunt beginning promptly at 6:30. One grand prize egg will have a prize worth up to $100 with a second and third place egg worth up to $40 and $20 respectively. Plus, 100 eggs will each contain $5 gift cards to the winery and other places. And of course, lots of eggs containing candy!
Nonrefundable tickets are $20 per person (not including tax) and reservations and prepayment required so be sure to call the winery today to join us for this great event!
