PATTERSON – The weekend
weather was ideal for outdoor activity as hundreds of wine enthusiasts
were on hand for Putnam County’s 8th annual International Wine and Food
Fest on the grounds of the Patterson Fire Department.

The two-day event showcased New York’s renowned wine, ale and spirits
producers, along with food purveyors, artisans and craftsmen in addition
to local and international artists.

Organizers said a portion of the proceeds from the festival will be donated
to the Green Chimneys School to further the education of children with
special needs.
