RiverLink's Fall Salon Series begins Sept. 4th

WNC is home to an increasing number of craft brewers and an ever-expanding number of events that use local beer to support non-profits. Join RiverLink on Friday, September 4, 2015 at RiverLink's Warehouse Studios at 3 p.m. for a presentation and question and answer session by Special Agent Stacy Cox of the Western District Alcohol Law Enforcement, a division of the NC Department of Public safety. 

This seminar should prove interesting and enlightening to local brewers and anyone who sells or serves alcohol. Not knowing and following the rules can lead to litigation, embarrassment and suspension of permits for future fundraising events.

Agent Cox is a native of New York who has worked in North Carolina for most of her professional career. 

The event is free, but registration is a must and is available by clicking here. 

The Fall Salon Series continues on Sept. 18, when Barbara Duncan and Friends will speak about the Cherokees' relationship to rivers, particularly the French Broad, and will share some reproductions of Cherokee artifacts including pottery and ancient cloth. The Cherokee Friends are cultural specialists from the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, and will provide flute music and storytelling. Duncan and the Cherokee Friends will participate in questions and answers from the audience.

Barbara Duncan has a Ph.D. in Folklore and has written award winning books about Cherokee history and culture, and has received the Brown Hudson Award from the North Carolina Folklore Society and the Cherokee Phoenix Award.

This event is also at RiverLink's Warehouse Studios at 3 p.m. While free, registration is required and available by clicking here.
