There are 4 seats left!
The cost per person is $30 and must be paid in advance to reserve your seat. Participants must be 21 or older.
Reservations are essential! If you would like to join us, please RSVP ASAP. We have reserved 2 buses again but seats are filling up fast by word of mouth already!
Sign up Form & Flyer is available online or at the RRA Office or call Barb Buckley at 440-645-7365. Please drop off your sign up form and payment at the RRA Office or mail to P.O. Box 8, Rome, OH 44085.
Wineries: After boarding the buses at the Clubhouse, will begin by rotating between Hundley Cellars, Harpersfield Winery, and Benny Vino Urban Winery. Grab some wine and a bite to eat. From there, we’ll round off the night by rotating between Red Eagle Distillery and South River Winery!
The Rib Cookoff has been cancelled due to lack of participation.

Due to such a low number of RSVPs received (probably due to the bridge closure), this Friday’s Friends and Neighbors Potluck Supper has been cancelled.
Hopefully the RT 45 bridge will be fixed soon. Mark your calendars for the August Potluck – August 17th.
The STARS Club is currently seeking input on holding a rib cook-off on August 11th. In order to gauge interest in this event before they move forward, please complete the following survey. Thank you for your input!
Cook-off Preliminary Info:
How it works:
If participating as a cook — Sign up with the Club for a small entry fee. Prepare your favorite recipe for about 40-50 people and bring them to the Clubhouse for the cook-off. The Club will provide the sides.
If participating to eat — Your entry fee will buy you a ticket to sample ribs from each of our participants and you vote on your favorite. Additional tastings can be purchased.
Due to low ticket sales, the STARS Reverse Raffle this Saturday has been cancelled. If you had already purchased a ticket, your money will be refunded.
We will try another fundraising event some other time. The bridge closure may have affected participation.

On June 9, 2018 the club held its Kids Learn to Fish Day. Nine kids and their parents showed up for the event. The kids were taught how to tie knots, put on split-shot sinkers and bobbers. All of the kids received free fishing rods and learned how to cast them. The club also showed the kids the anatomy of a live large bluegill. The club demonstrated how to clean fish by 2 different methods, with an electric knife and a filet knife. The kids seemed quite impressed when you could clean and skin a fish in less than a minute. The meeting was followed by a hotdog lunch. It was a very successful event.
