Following the reception, the party will move over to Wood's Distillery on First Street where over 12 artists will also have paintings, photographs and sculptures available for purchase, again with a minimum of 30% being donated to the WWTP Fund. The show and sale at Wood's will only be available from October 3rd through that weekend.

We are hoping to see all of you who enjoy Valley View at both the Fritz and at the Distillery on Saturday, October 4th. If you can't make it then, please visit the Fritz during October. Remember, we are working to raise up to $180,000 to build the replacement for the antiquated "chocolate jacuzzi". Thank you.
