The wine at the Newtown Forest Association’s September 6 Sunset Wine Tasting Fundraiser must have been excellent. Even a sky full of lightening the latter part of the evening could not drive off the many supporters in attendance. Instead, the small room sheltering the auction donations became a full house, as did the nearby gazebo. Party on, foresters!
