Wine Tasting Party

A wine-tasting party was held at the Coffee Cake Winery in Hopedale, Ohio. Our guests enjoyed sampling the fine French-American hybrid wines produced by Frank and Janet Kuchan, proprietors of the winery. A delicious meal was provided by Figurski Catering of Adena, Ohio. Live music for the evening was played by Dan Pinciaro.

Many thanks to those in attendance, as well as those who were not able to attend, but sent donations. Over $1,600 was raised for The Melanoma Research Foundation.

Bike to Work Week in Pittsburgh

National Bike to Work Week was held on May 17 through 21, 2004. The festivities in Pittsburgh were organized by Bike Pittsburgh, with help from Friends of the Riverfront and Venture Outdoors.

I stopped down for the Park ‘N Pedal event at the Manchester park ‘n ride lot on Tuesday, and the commuters’ breakfast at the portico of the city/county building on Friday. Both mornings started off with severe thunderstorms, but turned very pleasant by mid-morning.

Pedal Pittsburgh

Today was the 11th annual Pedal Pittsburgh. This 60-mile ride highlights the character, architecture, and landscapes of Pittsburgh’s many neighborhoods.
