Raffle benefits Citrus Fair Arts and Crafts Life does have embarrass- ing moments. Marge Gray experienced one of those moments at the Citrus Fair on Sunday. The drawing for the Clover Quilter's Quilt was held at 3 pm. Ayoung girl was asked to draw the winning ticket from the hundreds purchased. When she handed Marge the winning ticket, it had Marge's name on it! Embar- rassing, since Marge designs and also sews on these quilts. She had bought tickets as the other quilters had done to help benefit the Citrus Fair Arts and Crafts Programs. This was the 5th quilt do- nated as a thank you for use of a room at the fair. And what is Merge going to do with this winning quilt? Make some more money from an auction or raffle this time to benefit the rehabilita- tion of the Gould/Shaw House Museum by the Cloverdale Historical Society. Watch for further details and display of the quilt.

Wine Center hosts event at Souverain Feb. 7 the Cloverdale Wine and Visitor Center hosted a wine fete at the Cafe, Chateau Soverain. Guests were drawn from the business and community lead- ers of Cloverdale and the sur- rounding wine country region. The program included a wine tasting from the Chateau's vine- yards, an elegant luncheon served by the Cafe's culinary staff and an informational pro- gram concerning the new Wine and Visitor Center to be located at 105 N. Cloverdale Blvd. This was the first event planned to promote the creation ofaWine Center Society, a group of civic minded leaders who will become an influential force in the creation and development of the Center. Future programs are planned to introduce the concept and scope of the Center to wine, rec- reational and tourist industry representatives throughout Northern Sonoma and Mendoci- no counties. A "demolition derby" conduct- ed by a crew of volunteers turned out recently to begin the remov- al of the former coffee shop equip- ment and furnishings to make room for the newly designed Center. The Wine Center is also on the internet with a special page cre- ated to provide information about the Center. The site was con- structed by Stewart Computer Services of Cloverdale. .Advertise in the Clovl|rdale Directory for lust $12 a week & get a story and a photo too!
