TRAVELING BOTTLE of WINE
Our Traveling Wine Bottles seemed to have stalled as we have many neighbors who have never received a bottle.    We are putting a couple more in circulation but if you have one – continue to move it forward.  This is something we started in early summer as our “replacement” for our famous Wine Down Fridays!   All the instructions are with the bottle but as a reminder;
 
“Traveling Bottle of Wine”
To Participate:
Someone will drop off a bottle of wine to your front door on a Friday.
That bottle of wine is for you to enjoy!  
Post the “I have been wined” note on your window or front door so you aren’t “wined” twice.
Then you leave a bottle of wine at a neighbor’s front door on the next Friday with this instruction
tag attached.
Keep it “traveling” through the neighborhood
