Well, it is officially 2012, and we
are starting to gear up for another year of Slow Food activities. We
wanted to let you know about our first one for the year!
We are very proud to be partnering with the Yamhill Soil & Water Conservation District this winter for the Stan Christensen Conservation Movie Series!
This film series includes three films and is spread over three months.
Each film showing will be held at Third Street Pizza in downtown
McMinnville, the third Thursday of the month. Showings will start at
6:30pm (please come a little early to order some tasty food and great
local beer!). Each month will feature a new film with unique themes
related to conservation efforts and/or slow food efforts. We hope you
can join us for this FREE and informative event! Details below.
