Sometimes it's a new vintage of an old favorite, sometimes it's something we think will pair exceptionally well with a new cheese, and sometimes it's just something that we found that we think is particularly interesting. All friends of legal sipping age are welcome to participate in this free tasting activity. Chester River Wine & Cheese Co. Visit the Facebook event page for more info -

Regular Museum Hours

December 8 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

'Tis the season for.......a visit to a small, local history museum! If "Christmas crazy" hits you or your family members, bring all of them into Sumner Hall for a visit. It's a quiet, thoughtful place where the focus is on others and on what has gone on before - so as to better understand what is going on now. Hmm. Sounds like.... perspective. Could be just the trip the doctor ordered for this time of the year!
