United Way of Freeborn County volunteers would like to thank everyone who attended and supported Fountain Warehouse Liquor’s Wine Tasting on Nov. 6.

Everyone had a wonderful time, thanks to the efforts of the staff and management at Wedgewood Cove Golf Club. The decorations were beautiful and the hors d’oeuvres were delicious. Wedgewood Cove very graciously donated the room space for the evening.

Thank you to Ron Freeman of Fountain Warehouse Liquor and the wine and beer vendors who supplied samples for everyone to try.
