The Rotary Club of St. Marys held its 5th Annual Wine and Cheese Tasting at the Pyramid Centre on Nov. 12 from 7:00 to 11:00 pm. Rotary thanks these local cheese makers and vendors for their generous contributions: Shepherd’s Gourmet Dairy with their selection of feta cheeses; C’est Bon Cheese, George Taylor’s excellent goat cheese; Stone Town Artisan Cheese – Swiss cheeses made by the Weber Family. Towne and Country Cheese Shoppe donated the blue cheese and provided the brie and delicious cheddar. As well, McDonald’s Independent generously donated cheese and fruit trays, baguette and a silent auction item. Special thanks to Steam Whistle beer and 13th Street Winery for their donations, to the Inner Wheel ladies who creatively decorated the hall, and to Nelda Oliver for taking pictures.
These downtown merchants helped with ticket sales: Carpe Vinum, St. Marys Wines, M and M Variety, Hubbard Pharmacy and Towne and Country Cheese Shoppe. Many others donated items for our silent auction and we thank you.
Wonderful entertainment was provided by local musicians: Landon Hoare, Dan Armstrong, and Frank St. Germaine. Thank you!
Finally, a huge thank you goes out to everyone who attended and made the evening a success. All proceeds go back to our community through the many projects that our club sponsors.
Yours in Rotary,
Pierre Chateauvert, Chair, Rotary Wine and Cheese Committee
