Denise Pennington, garden club president, said the event will cost $100 per ticket and feature an appearance by Pierluigi Giachi, a winemaker from Tuscany, Italy. Proceeds from the event will benefit the club's Beautification Fund, she said.

The wine-tasting party will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 10 in the showroom of Younger Toyota at 1945 Dual Highway.

People who want to purchase tickets may call Pennington at 301-733-6611.

Board says club cannot hold public concert

Washington County liquor officials on Wednesday denied an informal request by the North American Rod and Gun Club to hold a public concert at the club in March.

Walter Kipe, a North American Rod and Gun Club spokesman, told the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County that the club was interested in having a band perform March 1. Although Kipe did not name the band, he said it would have "a broader appeal than to the club's members."

Robert L. Everhart, chairman of the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, said private clubs cannot hold concerts and invite the public. Such events are open only to club members and their guests, he said.

Kipe said he wanted to talk to the commissioners before he booked the band.

"We're not going to schedule something without coming here first," he said.
