October 10, 1-3pm–Bubbles, Bivalves, Birds and a Bake Sale @ Meriwether Wines.  Don’t miss this opportunity to share an afternoon of jazz and great food at Domaine Meriwether in Veneta.  We’ll be drinking their renowned bubbly and eat oysters prepared by Adam’s Sustainable Table restaurant.  Music will be provided by Ken Luker and Paul Biondi Jazz.

You’ll be able to satisfy your sweet tooth at our Bake Sale.  Our theme is pies and tarts.  Local bakeries will be highlighted, but you can contribute, too.  Email Florence Luker for information.  You can also call 509-680-1547.
