Spooky Vineathon Recap
So much fun was had this past Sunday for our Spooky Vineathon. Although there were threats of rain until the last minute, the weather came through and we had sunshine for the duration of the event!
We were very excited to present a check for $440 to the Dassel Area Food Shelf this week and hope to have more opportunities to serve our community in the future.
The Meeker Area Food Shelf has two sites in Dassel and Litchfield and relies heavily on volunteers and monetary donations for day-to-day operations.
Some interesting figures from their website:
-$10 can purchase a case of whole wheat spaghetti noodles
- $25 can purchase 2 cases of canned fruit
-$50 can purchase 5 cases of chicken noodle soup
-$100 can purchase a month's supply of peanut butter
-$200 can purchase 4 cases of ground beef
-$1,000 can purchase a month's supply of food from our food bank to supplement in-kind donations

New Racking at the Winery
This week Matt and Don set up the new racking in the storage area of the winery. I was shocked to hear there weren't any funny stories or mishaps related to the installation, being there is never a dull moment here.
