Honesdale. New location for Rotary Beer & Wine Garden

| 14 Jun 2023 | 09:07

Honesdale Rotary’s popular Beer & Wine Garden will be back at Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival this year on Saturday, June 17, but in a new space: the parking lot at 214 Ninth Street. This is right next door to the former site, the Grace Episcopal Church courtyard.

Admission is free, but guests must be 21 to enter. Domestic/Craft Beer and wine, $7 a glass, Bratwurst from the Alpine Restaurant, $7 each and other snacks will be available. Open 1 p.m. – 8 p.m.

The Roots’ event is a prelude to the Honesdale Rotary’s first ever “Honesdale Beer & Wine Fest” this coming September 23 at the Wayne County Fairgrounds. That event will include music, food vendors and artists booths.

Honesdale Rotary is a service club of close to 40 people working to benefit the local community and the world at large. Local projects include providing shelves and a refrigeration unit for the Wayne County Food Pantry, restoring the Fred Miller Pavilion in Honesdale, raising funds for Billy’s New Hope Barn and the Victim’s Intervention Program, funding tech equipment for Wayne Highlands Science Olympiad students and the Wayne County Arts Alliance’s new building, and roadside trash pickup.

Honesdale Rotary also sponsors an annual wellness clinic with low-cost laboratory testing and a blood drive. The club is also involved in Rotary International’s Polio Eradication Project and the International Student Exchange Program.

New members are welcome. Log onto Honesdale Rotary on Facebook for more information.
