Applause! Applause!

Less than two weeks ago, the Riverside WineFest 2010 was held at our magnificent site for its ninth year running - and what a success it was! I must apologize for not posting this sooner, but it has taken me this long to compile the list of everyone who played a role in making this event possible. My hope is that I did not leave off even a single name and/or organization. I also hope that every name is spelled correctly.

When I presented a hard copy of this list to the Executive Director, and she flipped through it page by page, we agreed that this visual was absolutely humbling. THANK YOU ALL for being part of the Sotterley Plantation history. Your generosity of time, talents, and contributions enables us to carry on the mission of this non-profit, National Historic Landmark:

to preserve, interpret, and research Sotterley Plantation’s diverse cultures and environments throughout its history, to serve as a public education resource, and to provide a cultural venue for the community.
