PETOSKEY -- Leadership Little Traverse and Great Start FreeCycle will present "Off the Page," a children's book drive featuring food and wine tasting, from 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 10, at Mackinaw Trail Winery, 3423 U.S. 131 South, Petoskey.
Admission is free with donation of a children's book (for ages 12 or younger).
Along with the winery, participants in the tasting portion of the event will include Twisted Olive, Stafford's Pier, City Park Grill, Cafe Sante and American Spoon Foods.
The Great Start FreeCycle program collects and distributes gently used books around Emmet, Charlevoix and northern Antrim counties, with a goal of getting free books into children's hands. Families can pick up free books from bins in locations where families and young children visit.
Leadership Little Traverse is a community leadership training program presented by the Petoskey and Harbor Springs chambers of commerce, with each year's class pursuing a community service project. The class of 2013 made the FreeCycle initiative the focus of its project.
Friday's event is sponsored by Mackinaw Trail Winery, Jack VanTreese & Associates and the Leadership Little Traverse Class of 2013.
