…and we all had a really good time! Big thank you to the Clarksburg community, our families and friends, and everyone who turned out to support the Schoolhouse fundraiser. Clarksburg has STRONG ROOTS – and we are all truly fortunate to be part of this unique and wonderful community!
A mission of the 1883 Clarksburg Schoolhouse is to highlight and share appreciation of the original inhabitants of Clarksburg and the multi-cultural backgrounds of the early settlers. Thank you to the Japanese, Portuguese, Hispanic and Dutch communities for sharing their foods, stories and photos, and to David Stuart for sharing his expert knowledge of the Plains Miwok tribe. Thank you to Acoustic Events for rounding out the tastings with a great charcuterie table. Attendees were able to taste everything from Azorean cheese to churros, nigiri, roasted salmon, Stroopwafels and more.
A big THANK YOU to Rotary club of Clarksburg for pouring the delicious Clarksburg wines! Not only were the Rotarians great winetenders, but they pitched in to help with planning, setup, execution and teardown. They were with us all the way! And special thanks to the wineries who generously donated the wine: Bogle Winery, Heringer Estates Family Vineyards & Winery, Kirchoff Family Wines, Miner’s Leap Winery and Silt Wine Company
The shining stars at any Schoolhouse event are the volunteers who work tirelessly to make everything run smoothly. Special thanks to our cheerful check-in volunteers: Lee Harris, Anna Swenson, Mallory Brown and Crystal Sandoval. Thanks also to Lee for a creating the flower arrangements. To David Kamminga for playing his beautiful music. And to Boy Scout Troop 83 for handling the parking. We are grateful to have a robust community of folks who joyfully give of themselves. From all of us to all of you: THANK YOU!
