The Wine-Down Downtown event to promote local businesses was held last Saturday night and was a huge success.
We had over 70 visitors to the Watts House. They ate good food, drank coffee and punch (we couldn't have wine at the last minute due to insurance issues). They didn't seem to mind at all that there was no wine.
I understand from talking to the other businesses that participated that people were raving about the Watts House and the delicious food we served.
Visitors were able to tour the house. Once again many of them said they'd lived here for years and never been inside the Watts House. We are still working on changing that here in the community.
We made sales from the gift shop and received a few donations, but the main reason for participating in this was to get people into the museum to see all we have to offer.
Lots of brochures handed out on the museum, upcoming teas and the car show.
We were definitely pleased with the turn out.
