Autumn Sampler Was A Big Success
About 100 people came for the Springbrook Autumn Sampler to taste excellent wines, beers, and food from local restaurants and vendors. The tasting event had about two dozen alcoholic beverage producers and distributors and food vendors offering samples of their products in a vibrant, managed environment. All the net income benefits the Nature Center.
This party event was hosted by Springbrook Nature Center (a City of Fridley park), the Springbrook Nature Center Foundation, and Fridley Liquor (a City of Fridley business). Party goals were to build community, to have an enjoyable event, reach a diverse audience, to earn some money, and foster intra-city-department collaboration.
