Event: October 21, 2007

Aldea’s First Annual Harvest Fest was a wonderful success. Our big ticket raffle winner was Al Robinson, an Aldea resident on Calle Amistosa. Al won a $100.00 gift certificate for dinner at The Railyard Restaurant.

For those of you who came to the event we thank you for your support. For those of you who could not attend you missed a wonderful event that included international folk dancing, a beer garden, a great band “Radio” ( and brisk fall weather tempered by a warm sun. After the event ended, it snowed!
