Teachers' Luncheon

Sunday, September 10th, 2017 
Wilson Creek Winery
35960 Rancho California Road
Temecula, CA 92591 

Join us for an afternoon in Wine Country! All SDFG members who have students who may wish to participate in SDFG events in the 2017-2018 season are invited to the annual Teachers’ Luncheon. We will announce our season of events, and hand out packets with information on the upcoming events for the year, and review the benefits of membership so that you may share this information early with your students. Most importantly, however, the luncheon is a time to share your teaching stories, spend time together, and embrace the wonderful community of flute teachers in the greater San Diego area! Our greatest hope is that we can all come together to celebrate this exceptional group of dedicated and talented teachers and friends.

This year, we’ve chosen to host the luncheon at the delightful Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula Wine Country! Wilson Creek features extensive picnic grounds, bocci ball, a warm and welcoming tasting room, and if you’re still hungry after lunch, you’re welcome to head to their Creekside Grille. If you’d like to purchase wine tasting tickets to enjoy during the meeting, they are $20 at the door which includes 5 tastings, a glass that you can take home, and $5 off of any purchase.

The luncheon is free to attend, please RSVP no later than September 3rd.
