I would like to thank everyone who took part in the Raise the Barn Wine Tasting event, "Pickin' and Sippin' in the Park" at Micke Grove.

A big thank you for donations from Food-4-Less of Lodi. And thank you to all the wineries who poured or donated their wonderful wines to taste: Jeremy Wines, Dancing Coyote, Watts Winery, Woodbridge Winery, Anderson Vineyards, Peltier Station Winery, Borra Winery, Ironstone (Bear Creek), Viaggio Winery, Delicato Winery, and from the Fair Play region (El Dorado County), Fitzpatrick Winery, Ursa Winery and DK Cellars.

Thank you to all of the 16 vendors and crafters who had booths.

Thanks for the delicious food provided by Doug's Bruchetta, Vix's Jammin Desserts, Sandra's Catering, Liberty Pony Club, Cheese Central and Dove Chocolates.

Thank you to the groups that provided music for the event: Mokelumne River Band (Woodbridge), Horse and Buggy Harpers (Galt) and Strong Brothers (Sonora).

Thank you to all the docents and staff of the museum who make these events possible. Without your untiring devotion to the children of San Joaquin County, who attend the Pioneer School, Valley Days and Farm to Fork, we could not host events like this. We all are working very hard to raise funds to build an educational building, which is greatly need for these programs.

Thanks to all who attended. We truly appreciate your support. I hope everyone had as much fun as my wife and I did.

Jack Johnson

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
