2nd Annual Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate

The 2011 Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate Tasting is scheduled for May 13 n Somerset. It will have an international theme with wines from three continents. You will use your passport to guide you between our destinations, sampling red or white wines at each stop. Fine chocolate selected to compliment the port wine we are serving from Europe will be locally hand made. Fine cheese and other munchies will will help clear your pallet along the way.

We will have a silent auction of dozens of items, all great bargains. We are currently soliciting and selecting items. We will also have a "Duty Free" room with fine wine, food, and travel related items for purchase.

Sponsorships for the overall event, rooms (continents), and Duty-Free space are now open. The three levels of sponsorships are:
Platinum Medal Event Sponsor (Only One)
Gold Medal Wine Tour Sponsor (Three)
Silver Medal Associate Sponsors

Contact us for more information and to participate. These are great opportunities to get your name recognized as a Niwot business and active community participant. Email Deborah Read-Fowler at dread@niwotrotary.org to get the ball rolling!

HEADLINE:    Oktoberfest
Our 1st Annual Oktoberfest in Niwot was a huge success!

The Oktoberfest was held in front of The Niwot Market in Cottonwood Square, on October 3. It featured Left Hand Brewery beer, brats and dogs, three bands, and a lot of fun.

The Attendance was more than double what we expected, but with some scrambling, we were able to throw more brats on the grill, pour more beer, and talk and dance peoples' tails off while the little ones bounced to the beat of the bands in the air castle. We are happy to announce that this will become a regular annual event. Plan to join us every year on the first Saturday of October for future Niwot Oktoberfests.

The event was financially successful, as well. The Club raised over $3900 for community and Rotary service projects. $270 will be directed to the International Rotary eradication of polio efforts and the rest will be coming back to our projects in and around Niwot. Since they helped so much in making this inaugural event as big success, please take a look at the sponsors that worked with us and thank them for being in Niwot.

Spotlight on the Oktoberfest Organizer

Margaret Hix was a Gunbarrel resident for eight years before moving to Erie to support her daughter's ice skating. This past February she found herself returning to the area when she joined the Rotary Club of Niwot. She had been looking to join Rotary and learned that the new Niwot Club was looking for members.

Hix's membership in Rotary gave her the chance to help organize Niwot's first annual Oktoberfest. She was the planning chair and organized and coordinated the other members. She and her committee obtained sponsorships, hired the bands, produced and posted the fliers, got permits for  the event, set up the stage, organized the vendor booths, and coordinated the food. In her words, "We were in charge of just making sure it was a fun time for all, including the kids."

Margaret also credits and thanks her fellow Niwot Rotarians. Nearly everyone in the small club contributed hours, energy and ideas to making the event such a great success.
