WELLSBURG - The Tri-State Winemakers Club held their October meeting at the Wellsburg Elks Lodge with Ron Stimpak presiding.
Marlene Marsh hosted the Halloween-themed party and awarded door prizes to Norma Kovach and Wilson Cole. Rick and Cindy Parker won best costume, and March was voted most original wine label winner.
Treasurer Linda Cole gave her report and accepted donations for Bootsie's Boxes to send to active-duty military members for Christmas. Patti Stimpak read the last meeting's minutes and a second reading of a club by-laws change.
Bill Shipe thanked club members for their wine donations for the Marine Corps Ball and reminded them they can drop-off donations at the Winemakers Loft in Follansbee until Nov. 8 or bring them to the Weirton Lions Club wine-tasting Oct. 27 at Legends Hall in Weirton.
Members voted on the main course and appetizers for the Christmas party, which will be held Dec. 7 at the Weirton Knights of Columbus. Reservations must be paid by Dec. 1 and can be paid at the November meeting.
Gino Guglielmo will host the Nov. 8 meeting at his Weirton home.
