Apr 09   Winemaker Wednesdays
Winemaker Wednesdays is really for one kind of person: the type of person that not only loves to drink wine, but adores learning about it, talking to people about it, experiencing it. Certainly everybody is invited to this limited series of unique, custom winery experiences, though it has been conceived for passionate, curious fans of wine, winemaking and all that goes into that. Each winery has crafted some kind of unique, or special event or activity for these days. And the programs may change from one Wednesday to the next. It is necessary for you to call the winery and make an appointment for these, and at that time you can confirm their offering. The reason an appointment is required, is because many wineries commit to one or two members of their senior leadership (owner and/or winemaker or vineyard manager, oftentimes) to conduct the program, and typically those individuals have a slew of other tasks and chores they should be doing, and appointments enable them to manage their time best. Some of these offerings have fees associated with them,  most do not. Most have limited time constraints, some do not. Every Winemaker Wednesday takes place on the second Wednesday of the given month. For a more detailed list of the varying opportunities offered by the participating wineries, please visit our website.

Apr 26   Yogi's 1st Annual ASAP Walk & Roll

ASAP.org reviews and funds research annually. They promote awareness by hosting support groups and community fundraisers throughout the nation. Together with its membership, ASAP works toward fulfilling its mission to improve the lives of persons affected by Syringomyelia, Chiari malformation and related disorders while they find a cure.

In 2001, I was diagnosed with Syringomyelia and Chiari malformation. I was told that it was a birth defect. My cerebellum was drooping into the top of my spinal canal causing my spinal fluid to pool. This was causing erosion to my spinal cord, which then caused numbness in various body parts and caused other complications throughout my body. Over the past few years, research has been able to find out that Syringomyelia and Chiari malformation is just not a birth defect, but also can be caused by trauma to the neck/spinal cord due to car accidents, sports injuries, etc. In 2001, there were only 3 stages of Chiari. Today, they have researched 5 different stages.

Syringomyelia is a disorder in which a fluid-filled cyst called a syrinx, forms in the spinal cord. Over time, the cyst enlarges and causes damage to the spinal cord. Chiari malformation is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into your spinal canal. It occurs when a portion of your skull is abnormally small or misshapen, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward. Although Chiari malformation is uncommon, it’s now diagnosed more frequently due to improved imaging tests.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and your support.
