What else is happening this weekend in Winterset? Here's a few items to note:
On Friday morning at 9:00 there is a Community Coffee sponsored by the Library. This weekly free event is open to everyone, and is currently being held at the Zion Church at the Historical Complex while the library is undergoing repairs.
Here's something you don't hear every day... Farmers & Merchants State Bank is sponsoring "Cash Mob Friday" at Montross Pharmacy on Friday morning at 11:30. The first 50 people at Montross at that time will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to use there on that day only!
On Friday evening at 6:30, there's a Wine Basics class at Applehurst which might still have space available. Contact Susan at 515-344-4084 to find out.
Something I neglected to mention last week but attended myself on the 19th is "Smoke On The Mountain" at The Winterset Stage. If you have not seen this yet, I highly recommend it! Their last two performances are this Friday and Saturday at 7:30. All the actors are very well cast, creating an ensemble that's both musically talented and VERY funny.

On Saturday evening at St. Joseph Catholic Church there's a benefit auction to assist with ALS treatment for Jeff Beebe, and there are lots of great donations to bid on. Take a look at the list below for starters, but more items have been added! Doors open at 6:30, and the bidding begins at 7:30. You can also read Jeff's story here.
Also on Saturday evening, singer/songwriter Mike Aceto will provide live music at the Madison County Winery from 7:00 to 10:00.
