TVWS – PS I Love You


12Feb2014_1_TVWS-PS-I-Love-You_Flowers-4-RobinOn February 12th, the Treasure Valley Wine Society held the PS I Love You wine dinner. PS, in this case, was Petite Sirah! After 9 or so years on the Board, this was Robin’s and my last function on the Board. We have retired from the office. There is always a time when one must let the “new blood” of any organization “do their thing” and now is the time. The TVWS Board is extremely lucky to have some fine individuals that just came on the Board or have been there for a short time. Now it is their time to shine. We have thoroughly enjoyed the past many years and will continue to hold the organization and the people who support it in high esteem. We salute you and wish you well. Cheers and thank you for these beautiful flowers and the Gift Certificate to The Buzz. Here is how Robin and I exited the program. Enjoy these wines, the food and especially the friendships of the group. Robin did an awesome job in coordinating the food and the wine and the program tonight. Bis wir uns wieder treffen – Until we meet again.

Personally, I think that if you missed this event, you missed a fantastic one. Many thanks to Bev Fraser, Fraser Winery Owner, Patrick Williamson, Vineyardist at Williamson Winery and Kay Robert Johnson from Dream Chocolates for attending. It was our pleasure to have you. Cheers!
