Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Methow Valley style, at the annual “Bite of the Methow” on March 17 at the Winthrop Barn.
As always, the Bite will feature a scrumptious variety of food choices prepared by local restaurants, merchants and organizations. There will be live and silent auctions, with items donated by local merchants, along with a chance to win a Holland America cruise.
The event is a major fundraising event for the Winthrop Kiwanis, which uses the proceeds to support public service projects around the valley.
Each year, Kiwanis designates a special project to support. This year, the Fund a Dream project is replacement of the scoreboard at Mountain Lion Field at Liberty Bell High School.
Last year, the Fund a Dream project was construction of an ADA-accessible ramp at the Twisp Valley Grange. In previous years, projects included purchasing roller skates for the Winthrop Rink and new wrestling mats for Liberty Bell High School.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased from any Kiwanis member, or at the Tenderfoot in Winthrop or Windermere Real Estate in Twisp. Doors will open at 3 p.m. and the “Bite” officially gets underway at 5 p.m. Call 996-3991 for more information.
