To the Editor:

The gentle chiding in the February 8 Keizertimes editorial may have given readers the mistaken impression that Keizer Parks Foundation’s Pinot in the Parks fundraiser on March 15 is on a Saturday night. But no!

Wine will flow, music will play, food will tempt, and community warmth and conviviality will fill the Keizer Community Center at the Civic Center on Friday, March 15, from 6 to 9 pm. That’s FRIDAY, as in “date night,” the “F” in TGIF, the Sergeant Joe in Dragnet.

All proceeds go back to the city for projects such as playgrounds, the dog park, and the free summer recreation program for kids. So help us make this an annual success: Buy a couple of tickets, bring a few friends, and spend a few bucks for a good time and a good cause.

But don’t show up on Saturday, or you’ll have missed all the fun!
