We look forward to the time when we can again talk and laugh and taste wines together at the Turn Verein but until then, Zoom is where we’ll meet.
SHW’s Education Committee keeps working on bringing you interesting monthly meetings and activities. So, how about a Fun and Games night for the Club’s September 16 meeting? We are in search of a member who can provide technical help in putting the meeting together on Zoom.
We’re envisioning setting up breakout groups with maybe 10 of us in each and having friendly team competitions. Wine making Trivia? “Guess the wine I’m drinking?” Or showing memorable wine snippets from movies with short discussions after?
We need your help. If you’re a Zoom maestro and can help us put together the September program, please contact Donna Bettencourt at email@example.com. Send her your Fun and Games suggestions, too.
