We bid Howard Reid farewell as he ventures to Colorado to be near his children and Grandchildren. We know, Howard, that you will find some good wines at your new home. Thank-You for your help with the Board of Directors of TVWS and your years of service. You are welcome back at any time you are in the “neighborhood”.
And to Barbara, who celebrated yet another birthday – let’s see …. that must be number 39 – Happy Birthday, Barbara!
Chef Jake did another fantastic buffet with baked Walla Walla sweet onions filled with Walla Walla asparagus; an awesome dish of roasted duck and Jake’s wife, a superb pastry Chef, made the Napoleons for dessert. Well done! Here are some photos of the evening. Enjoy and please VOTE above. Thanks!
