    Hello Val and Friends at KEZI,

    The McKenzie After 5 Rotary Club and the Springfield Rotary Club are hosting the 1st annual McKenzie Cider and Craft Beer Festival November 2nd and 3rd at the Willamalane Center, 250 S. 32nd Street in Springfield and we are hoping you will help us spread the word.

    The hours will be from 5p-11p on Friday November 2nd & 12n-11pm on Saturday November 3rd, family hours are from 12n-5p. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased on our website: http://www.mccbf.com or at the door. Enjoy the finest Cider and over 40 Craft Brews from Oregon, Washington, and California along with live entertainment from your favorite local artists. A limited selection of oak aged beers will also be available. Food selections will also be offered.

    Proceeds raised will go to Belly-Full, a Rotary project that, in conjunction with Food For Lane County, will help to feed hungry children and their families in Springfield by 1) providing community gardens at each elementary school; 2) providing snack packs that children will take home for weekend eating; and 3) assisting with the Mobile Food Pantry, a Food for Lane County project which brings the “grocery store” to neighborhoods so that low income families have access to healthy food. More information can be found at belly-full.net.

    We would welcome the opportunity to come to your studio in the early morning hours to help spread the word.

    Thanks for your help.


    Tami Humphries
