A "Celebration of life in memory of Jerry Mead" is being held this coming Sunday, May 21 at the Hoot Owl Creek Vineyards picnic facility in the Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California from noon til dusk.

Guest have been asked to bring a good bottle of wine plus a number of wineries are contributing wines. Because there will be an auction of wine later in the day for the Jerry Mead Fund many guests are bringing an extra older or big bottle for the auction.

If you were fond of Jerry and would like to attend this celebration in his honor please RSVP to Jim Wallace at for more infomation.

WINES.COM will be providing light picnic fare (hot dogs, etc). You may want to stop at the corner of Dry Creek Rd. and Healdsburg Ave. to pick up some cheese, fruit, raw veges, picnic supplies or whatever at the market there. They also have a decent selection of wines if you're not traveling with one of your treasures.

Shorts and short sleeves will more than likely be the dress code. You may want to bring a towel or small picnic type blanket.

Dan Berger will initiate the festivities with a discussion about Jerry at 1 [img][/img].m., Dan will be followed by Wendy Nyberg of Buena Vista Winery and then Jeanette Jenness of the Carson City WINO chapter. If you would like to speak, or have a few words read on your behalf, please contact Jim Wallace at
