Family of Rotary

Holiday Cheers Fellowship

Join us for Wine Tasting,

                                    Chocolate Pairing,

& Holiday shopping


Hello Rotarians!

I wanted to invite you to join your fellow District 5890 Rotarians at our 2nd Family of Rotary event of the year.

We will be having a Wine and Chocolate Tasting and Shopping event at the Ten Thousand Villages store located in the Rice Village shopping center.

If you have someone on your Holiday gift list who "has everything" - this is the place to go. Ten Thousand Villages is a non-profit fair trade retailer that offers a unique selection of international artisan crafted gifts. Everything they sell are Fair Trade products produced in international artisan co-ops and very affordable.

(Fair Trade, in a nut shell, is the idea that if you eliminate the "middle-men" then you provide under- and unemployed artisans with the opportunity to earn vital income and improve their quality of life by establishing a sustainable market for their handcrafted products. )

Here is the good news - The evening includes a paired Wine and Chocolate tasting also light hors d'oeuvres will be provided - and is totally free to attend.

Here is the best news - 15% of all purchases made that evening will be donated to the Rotary Foundation!

So whether you like Wine, Chocolate, finding unique gifts, or the idea of supporting Fair Trade and the Rotary Foundation then we look forward to seeing you on

December 1st at Ten Thousand Villages.

The event is on Monday December 1st from 6PM until 8PM and the store will be open exclusively for Rotarians and their guests.

Ten Thousand Villages is located at 2424 Rice Blvd #A in the Rice Villages shopping center. I encourage you to check out their website to learn more about the Ten

Thousand Villages story and see some of the handcrafted items they offer.
