Corks For Community
Wine Tasting at The Colony Hotel, June 16th







A tasting and presentation of MAN Family Wines (Agter-Parrl, South Africa) will be held at The Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport on Thursday, June 16 from 5:00-7:00 PM with 100% of the proceeds going to Kennebunk Free Library. 
 
MAN Family Wines - named using the first initials (Marie, Anette and Nicky) of the wives of the wine-makers  -  will be visiting from South Africa to discuss their wines.
 
Corks for Community guests will be greeted with a Methode Cap Classique Brut on the ocean porch at The Colony Hotel.  Other wines offered for tasting will include Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Cinsaut.  Additionally, delicious hors d’oeuvres will be served by The Colony staff.
 
 “We are very excited that The Colony Hotel selected Kennebunk Free Library to benefit from this community event.  The wine tasting, conversations with Marie and Anette from MAN Family Wines combined with delicious hors d’oeuvres on the porch at The Colony sets this up to be a spectacular event!”
 
Tickets are now available by visiting or calling Kennebunk Free Library.  Purchased in advance, tickets cost $20.  There will also be a limited number of tickets available at the wine tasting for $25.
In the event of uncooperative weather, the tasting will be moved to The Colony’s ballroom.

Notary Services Now at KFL

The Library is now offering notary services! The service will be available most weekdays, but we recommend calling in advance to ensure that a notary is available. Please remember to bring a valid photo ID and, of course, the document to be notarized. Most documents must be signed in the presence of the notary to be valid so it's best to not sign in advance. There will be a small $2 fee per document. 

For more information, email us or give us a call at 985-2173.
