Johan Vineyard

Coming August 25th Johan Vineyards will be hosting their annual “Dinner in The Vineyard”. Johan Vineyards will partner with Fimbul Nordic Supper Club who will be carefully preparing dishes inspired by the Nordic landscape and ancient Scandinavian traditions, while Johan will pair each course with a biodynamically farmed wine that pays homage to those same influences. The entire dinner is served tin the heart of the vineyard, just before harvest, when the vines are in their full glory. It is an intimate and exclusive experience not to be missed. Space is limited to 30 guests. The menu and ingredients are limited, so please contact Johan Vineyards prior to reservation regarding dietary restrictions. Cost is $160 per person, $145 for Wine Club Members all inclusive. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

 

Pacific Power

Pacific Power presented a check today to the City of Dallas, Mayor Dalton, and the Booster Club. This check will go to the new Turf at Dallas High School that we have all worked so hard as a community to make possible. During the ground breaking of the turn it was announced that for the first time ever the project was completely funded before it began. According to the construction workers this is something that had never been seen before. Why to go Dallas, and thank you Pacific Power for helping to make the new turf possible!

The Solar Power Grants deadline is August 16th, 2018. This is a grant that Pacific Power funds dedicated to promoting the switch to solar power. The funds are available to any service or community building. If awarded the grant Pacific Power will pay a portion or up to the total that it would cost to install solar panels and make the switch. This is a great opportunity if you have been wanting to convert to solar power, but have not had the funding. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Prizes that included a movie night for the family, day at Enchanted Forest, or a romantic night out for two. CASA is now preparing for their second largest event of the year, themed CASA Blanca – Casino Night out! CASA Blanca will be held October 20th, with more details to come.
