The 2012 Memorial Day Weekend is off to a busy start. We brought in over 1000 pounds of Rhubarb at the Maple River Winery. We had groups stop by to visit today from 10 different states and Canada. Looks like the rest of the weekend with rain in the forecast will be a time to spend it indoors. That means we'll be busy this weekend. Think everything is in place for staff to be there til 7pm on Friday night...6 or 7 on Saturday night...noon to 5pm on Sunday and then 9 to 5 on Monday. We went through a lot of wine and spirits today. The top seller was Chokecherry Vodka. It seems the Chokecherry Truffle and the Chokecherry Fluff have become big hits. Might have to mix a couple of them up later.
Remember to take time this weekend and remember the reason we have a 3 day weekend. Memorial Day Services in Casselton begin at 10am with a parade from the Fire Hall to the Cemetery. Our thanks go out to each and every veteran as well as their families. We are glad that we are free. Thank you!!
