The Tastemakers

Despite the ominous weather forecasts on hurricane Hannah, the fearless group of OYFP-ers who showed up last Saturday to the second annual Apples & Wine, Wine & Apples fundraiser for Christopher's Haven were rewarded with a day of sunshine and the run of the orchard at Nashoba Valley Winery.

Huddled under umbrellas and hoodies, everyone nibbled on Starbucks pastries and sipped coffee while getting to know one another. Some people had heard about us through Yelp, others through our friends at SBS, and still others who'd had us on their radar for months.

Between the bus ride there and back, we noshed on pulled pork sandwiches and freshly dipped caramel apples, chatted with the juggler's wife about the lives of entertainers, sunbathed, and overlooked the orchard while sipping wine. Drowsy from the warmth of an Indian Summer day, nearly everyone laid out on the seats to nap on the ride home.

Thanks again to everyone who joined us--hope to see you around soon and take a look at more event photos on our Facebook group!
