This Week’s Meeting - September 18 Thursday lunch
Back by request: Join the wine tasting fun with Delia Orduna of Nevada City Winery as we handle last minute plans for Friday's Adventures & Wine Gala! 
Over the last two weeks a whirlwind has been brewing.  We have a wide variety of over 200 very special items.  Our Adventures & Wine event is getting a lot of great press on radio and in print.  Dream and the Dreamer are creating a fabulous draw! 
SPECIAL REQUEST for Auction Night :  Carolyn is inviting Club members to donate a bottle of wine and/or a couple dozen fresh baked cookies to expand our selection of dessert treats.
