Indian River High School graduates of all ages are invited to a casual winter get-together sponsored by the Indian River High School Alumni Association from 4 to 7 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 11, at Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery in Frankford. People can drop in anytime to say hello, share a drink and chat with other alums. Admission is free. Guests can purchase refreshments on-site.
“The purpose is to let alumni know there is an organization for our high school and what we do,” said Alumni Association President Karen Ware. “But also important is to see friends from school beyond your graduating class.”
Traditional high school reunions are just for one graduating year. Alumni meet and greets are relaxing, open events for all classes.
Salted Vines produces a range of wines from dry to sweet, plus $7 wine slushies, fresh fruit juices, cheese and chocolate plates. Guests can purchase a taste, a glass or a whole bottle. Also rolling up will be the Street Kitchen food truck known for its fish and shrimp tacos, beef brisket, pulled pork sandwiches and hot hand-cut fries.
Coastal Delaware’s own Cathy Jane will also perform live music during the event, blending acoustic American folk and early country.
According to Salted Vines, children are welcome but must be under the supervision of a parent or guardian at all times. Anyone under the age of 21 is not allowed at the tasting bar. The winery allows outside food and nonalcoholic drinks to be brought on premises.
Salted Vines is located at 32512 Blackwater Road, Frankford. To contact the winery, call 302-436-1500 or go to www.saltedvines.com.
Indian River High School Alumni Association’s next monthly meeting is at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 21, at Pizza King in Millsboro. New members and new ideas are always welcome. The nonprofit group formed in 2011 to connect alumni while supporting and promoting the high school. Membership is free. For more information, go to www.IRHSalumni.com.
