Rotary Club fundraiser postponed, meetings still on
The Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood had to postpone its March 21 Fab Crab Fest fundraiser due to the sale of Valley of the Moon Winery to Gundlach Bundschu. VOM Winery closed its doors on March 4, and the club didn’t have enough time to find a suitable nearby venue. They are planning a different fundraiser to take place in August or September and details will be forthcoming.
However, club meetings are still on for now, and there are some interesting speakers coming up. If you’d like to find out more about Rotary, come to one of the club’s meetings on the first and third Wednesday of the month, 5:30 p.m. at the Kenwood Depot. Your first meeting is free, and after that there is a $10 charge. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
