Apple Picking & Wine Tasting

Well, we've all made it through the hell known as September 1st in Boston. Even if you yourself weren't moving, chances are you know someone who was, helped someone move, or were a victim of the Boston newbies on Storrow Drive. My friend almost had a head-on collision with a BU driver going the wrong way down Storrow! Not to mention those too-tall trucks always getting stuck under one of the bridges (here's a hint - all moving trucks are too tall).

What better way to get some stress relief than by leaving the city for a day with On Your Feet Project? We've got just the bit of therapy you need - a fresh 'n' crunchy apple or three, a glass of local wine, and a quaint "Harvest Festival."

That's right, it's time for our second annual Apples & Wine, Wine & Apples event! We're taking a bus load of you kids out to the Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton, MA on September 6th for a real good time.

All you have to do is buy your ticket online for $30 (by Sept 3) or at the door for $35, and show up on the Boston Common by 10 AM to take our bus out to the country. There, you'll be able to go on a tour of the winery, sample some of the goods, partake in the Harvest Festival BBQ, and of course, pick some apples and a few late summer peaches.

If there's anything we New Englanders know, it's how quickly winter (eek!) will be upon us. Take advantage of the lovely fall season (and avoid high gas prices!) by joining us on our bus to the country.

Oh yes, and if you think 10 AM is a wee bit early for a Saturday morning, never fear! Our trusty sponsors Starbucks is here. They're donating breakfast pastries and coffee for those of us who are faint of heart in the morning.

See you there!

PS. In case you need yet another reason to join, all proceeds are going to help kids with cancer. Seriously. You can do good and have fun at the same time.

The wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round, 'round and 'round, 'round and out you'll go if you sing this song on our trip.
