W/M Rotary hears from speaker

Julie Fott, (right) executive director of Lake Erie Wine Country, and Rotarian Patty DiPalma pose after Fott addressed the Westfield/Mayville Rotary for the club’s rural-urban day. Lake Erie Wine Country has 24 winery members – 13 are in New York and 11 over the Pennsylvania border. In addition, 63 “tourism partners” support the wineries; the majority are dining, lodging and related businesses. Fott said plans for the organization include a new website, more tourism signs throughout the area and signs that point the way to wine trails.
