LOOK, SNIFF, SWIRL, TASTE! Get Ready for Vintage Alpine!

GET READY FOR VINTAGE ALPINE – WINE 101

The Alpine Kiwanis Club invites the public to attend the 28th Annual Vintage Alpine fundraiser to be held on May 6 by the nonprofit Kiwanis Club of Alpine Foundation, Inc., This amazing “Wine & Food Experience in the Country” will take place within the lovely gardens of Summers Past Farms at 15602 Olde Highway 80.

Vintage Alpine is a great event for the experienced wine connoisseur, but is also a wonderful Wine 101 for wine fans just getting started. Here are some pointers:

Put your senses to good use . . .

  1. Look at the color of the wine – it can reveal its age.
  2. Swirl the wine in the glass to reveal its heady aroma.
  3. Sniff it – different wines can smell fruity, earthy, nutty, floral or whatever you think it smells like.
  4. Taste the wine and let it roll around in your mouth. Is the taste like the smell? Is the body light, medium or full? Does it finish out nicely?

Attendees will be sampling premium wines from California and around the world, and will also taste the best that restaurants offer throughout San Diego County. Relaxing live music and a silent auction are also featured at the event.

Tickets are $70 in advance and $80 at the door. The event includes live music in a garden setting, a silent auction, and opportunities to meet wine and food specialists.

Special thanks to our major sponsors – Viejas Enterprises, Chris Wiley of Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc and Summers Past Farms. Their generous sponsorship demonstrates their support and commitment to our community.

All proceeds from the annual wine, beer and food tasting are used by Alpine Kiwanis to provide services and programs for children in the San Diego area.

Vintage Alpine is an adult-only event, and no one under 21 years will be admitted. To learn more about Vintage Alpine and the Kiwanis Club of Alpine, visit www.alpinekiwanis.com.

Support Alpine School Programs By Attending the AEF Spring Gala – April 21, 2018

Please join this effort by attending the AEF Spring Gala at the Viejas Oak Ballroom on Saturday, April 21, 2018 where there will be a Buffet Style Dinner, Live & Silent Auctions, and Music & Dancing all to support Educational Programs in the Alpine Union School District.

This year AEF has pledged to raise the needed funding to enable Proud Superintendent Rich Newman’s Wheels of Experts program.  This is a transformational program to provide integrated Pathways of enhanced electives across the district; to offer students and parents choice and options; to reinforce that Alpine Union is The Destination District of the East County!

When fully implemented, Wheels of Experts will provide multiple Pathways from Kindergarten through the Middle School enabling students to prepare for, and participate in, distinctive and enhanced electives.  This goal is to be achieved in part by identifying teachers with unique skills, and to compensate those teachers for the extra effort to visit every campus every week; to introduce their specialty, to help identify and mentor other teachers into those specialties.  Look to the successful Robotics-Coding-Engineering program at Joan MacQueen.  It is producing engineering teams every year that are winning local, regional and national recognition.  That program is now established and is being executed so well by our wonderful Diana Tompkins.

All of you funded that program through your support of AEF.  I have attached a write-up on it for you to read HERE: aef robotics-coding-engineering program history 2018-04-02 alt

Think now of expanding Robotics-Coding-Engineering into a Pathway from kindergarten through grade school through middle school.  And that is beginning to happen.  Our great teachers, Erica Lyle at Shadow Hills and Kathryn Golden at Boulder Oaks, will be offering Robotics courses at the AEF summer ReadyBreak Camps.  Erica Lyle is gearing-up for a regular curriculum of Robotics at Shadow Hills.

Along with Robotics-Coding-Engineering, Wheel of Experts is intended to provide Pathways for Math, Art, advanced Physical Education/Sports, and too even for Music, Nutrition, and Culinary Arts in  time.  We can achieve it all, if we can fund it all!  Again the overall program objective is to provide students and parents with choice and options for an enhanced education leading into the mid-21st Century.

Please link to AEF’s website for more information on the Spring Gala: https://aef4kids.org/ .  Click on the box “EVENT INFO”, read about the Gala and please buy your tickets.

Manuele joined the new foothills Kiwanis club in 1951, 13 days after it started. Always busy, the Kiwanis Club of Alpine is the third largest one in the California-Nevada-Hawaii Kiwanis district. Its 130+ members are known for their dedicated community service.
