Fearrington House to host Wine Club

The Fearrington House will host a monthly Wine Club with Wine Director Maximilian Kast. He will hand-select wines from smaller, family-owned wineries matched specifically to club members preferences and lifestyle.

Members of the Fearrington Wine Club have three options to choose from, including the Taste Club, which offers three bottles of wine chosen to your tastes; the Artisan Club: with six bottles of wine chosen to your tastes; and the Collector’s Club, six bottles of small production and/or hard to find wines, chosen to your tastes. All include technical data and histories of the wines and winery, food pairing ideas, and a monthly recipe from The Fearrington House Executive Chef.

Questionnaires and further information regarding the Fearrington Wine Club are available at The Belted Goat and The Fearrington House Restaurant. Call 919.542.2121 for details.

Homes on parade for October weekends

The Home Builders Association (HBA) of Durham, Orange & Chatham Counties presents the 2008 Parade of Homes on October 10 – 12, and 17 – 19 from 12 – 5 p.m. onsite at exciting new homes throughout Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties. In its 25th year of inviting the public to view some of the finest homes in the area, this HBA event showcases 103 homes with innovative designs, products, and technology in new home construction.

The event is free of charge and offers prospective buyers the opportunity to see fresh products and designs in the new home industry in a comfortable and relaxed environment. At each Parade home, books are available providing price and floor plan information, maps, and directions to all of the homes on the Parade. Parade books may also be picked up at Durham, Chapel Hill and Pittsboro Harris Teeter stores, Chamber of Commerce offices, real estate offices, and the HBA office.

$18,700 grant funds playground equipment

The Chatham County Public Health Department was one of nine counties recently awarded funds from Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina; a partnership from the North Carolina Division of Public Health. The $18,700 will be used to add new playground equipment at Goldston Municipal Park for children 0-5. Currently, there is nothing at the park for that age group. Holly Coleman, Health Director says, “The health department is pleased to be one of the award recipients, as only nine of the 43 applications were funded. This grant provides for environmental changes that will hopefully lead to increased physical activity and better nutrition for the children of the Goldston area”.

Palmer’s and Tender Touch Daycare Centers, Chatham County Partnership for Children, UNIQUE, a non-profit organization in Goldston, the Town of Goldston, and Active Chatham are all partnering with the health department to make this project possible.
