Winery Evening At Grand River Cellars
On Monday evening, September 18th, we went to Grand River Cellars, a Lake County winery located on Madison Road, for a "Winery Evening" in support of the Madison Public Library where "Margaret W. Wong & Associates" had once tabled on its business day.
We were told that this was the fifth year that this fundraising event (which looks to become an annual one) has taken place and by all counts it looked like a fine turnout of 150 people composed of the local Madison citizenry and school board officials who wanted to show support for their beloved library as well as people associated with libraries from all over the region who respect the standing of this particular library which has an excellent national ranking based on such factors as volume and its location.
We had attended the 2016 fundraiser also and, just as it was the previous year, the wine servers were Ms. Melanie Lyttle and Mr. Shawn Walsh who also helped with the raffle that closed the evening.
We spent most of our time saying "hello" to people that we knew and introducing ourselves to those we did not know but, to be sure, we enjoyed dancing to the music of the "Frank Samson Band" who offered its renditions of such hit songs as "I Ain't Got nobody", "Rock and Robin", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "Brown-Eyed Girl".
We were very happy when Mr. Joe Cigliano, an amiable guy playing the drums, won a collection of plates with pictures of ducks etched upon them as well as a pretty necklace composed of beach glass.
While we were there we conversed with a person named Karen who spends a lot of time working at the Madison library and dubs it her "retirement job" and said that she just loves associating with the people there. "It's like a family" she said.
