The inaugural Oregon Wine Country half marathon premieres on Labor Day weekend, Sunday, September 5, 2010. Experience the charm of the Willamette Valley when the weather is ideal and the vines are full prior to harvest. The scenic course meanders through the heart of Yamhill County – beginning at beautiful Stoller Winery … all the way down Abbey Road, past the Lobenhaus Bed & Breakfast & Vineyards, finishing in the town of Carlton. Race day is packed with all types of festivities for participants & friends. see web site for full details www.race4oregonwine.com
The Lobenhaus Bed & Breakfast gardens have been ”flocked” !! Magically, dozens of pink flamingos appeared among the flowers, by the waterfall…. all over the lawn. What a novel idea. Students from a local group is raising money to fund their trip next spring. For a small or (generous) donation they are happy to move the birds on to your friend’s yard to be “flocked”. Our B & B guests got a big kick out of the lawn decor! Several folks borrowed the idea to use in their own fund-raising projects.
