Greenport Rotary Open House at Kontokosta Winery

May 16 @ 6:00 pm

Greenport Rotary Club, Greenport, New York invites the community to be our guest and enjoy an
evening at Kontokosta Winery on May 16. Additionally, come and help celebrate the grand opening of the Greenport Express Miniature Train on Saturday, June 29.

On Thursday evening, May 16, 2024, 6:00pm, Kontokosta Winery will open its doors for an evening with the Greenport Rotary. Join us for a complimentary glass of wine, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and the company of your friends, neighbors, peers, and Rotarians. Bring a friend or two and learn about the work we do to make our community a better place.

It’s been years in the planning, months in the active building and now its grand opening is just days away. Originally the miniature railroad ran through Frank Field’s private property. Age became a factor and Mr. Field found he couldn’t keep running his beloved train. Local citizen, Joe Cherepowich stepped in and with his Greenport Rotary family, bought the engine and passenger cars. Richard Israel took over the heavy lifting after Mr. Cherepowich passed away.
In co-operation with the Village of Greenport, The Joe Cherry Choo Choo and the Greenport Express are now ready for its quarter mile travel through Moore’s Woods.

Join us for the highly anticipated grand opening celebration at the new station house located on Moores Lane. Save the date:
Saturday, June 29!
