Posted by bob on 22nd Oct 2015

Here are a few photos of the Port Oneida Historic Dinner.  It was the first time Cherry Republic has ever dressed up our little cafe and winery and did a fundraiser like this.  The dinner sold out and it was a nice balance of locals and long time customers and visitors.  We raised about $2,000 for the Port Oneida Community Alliance, but more importantly, we celebrated and thanked Jim Kelderhouse and the members of POCA for their hard work this summer.  It was fantastic to see crops growing on so ...
