Page Mill Winery, 1960 South Livermore Ave, Livermore
Thanks so much to all who came out and supported the scholarship fund for the Winery & Viticulture Tech Program at Las Positas College! It looked as if there were more people there than last year, and we raised more money for the scholarship, as well! Congratulations goes out to the winners of two wine country baskets, provided by Concannon Winery and Friends of the Vineyards, as well as a case of wine made by the students at Las Positas College. We hope the winners enjoy their treats (and maybe invite us over to share!).
We have to thank Page Mill Winery for providing an excellent weekly non-profit program! It is so generous of them and we greatly appreciate their support. We also want to thank the vendors that were there and donated a portion of their sales that night: Darnell the Pie Guy, Sugar n' Spice, and Wine Country Gifts & Jewelry. Check them out on Facebook and Google!

Arroyo Mocho @ Holmes St & Mocho St., Livermore
Friends of the Vineyards participated in the Coastal Clean Up activities that took place throughout the Bay Area on September 16th. The volunteers gathered along the Arroyo Mocho where they joined with local cub scouts to clean up a section of the arroyo. Participants gathered up numerous loads of trash and tracked the types and number of items located for scientific research purposes.
Among the most unusual items located were a hardbound Webster's Dictionary, a ceramic castle, half a pink ukelele, and a Christmas decoration. Everyone agreed it was a fun way to support our community.
