The Lake Shore Grape-Growers' Association will hold their summer meeting and excursion for the inspection of vineyards, commencing at Cleveland, August 25th, and continuing two or more days; embracing a visit on the first day (afternoon) to East Cleveland and Collamer, where are quite a number of very good vineyards, including that of Dr. Dunham, president of the Association. The second day will include a trip to Rocky River, Dover Bay, and Avon Point, where are quite extensive and promising vineyards, showing skillful and successful management. On the third day it is probable a party will go on a trip to Sandusky and the Islands. This will be a most favorable opportunity for persons from abroad to come and observe something of the condition and prospects of grape culture in the Lake region. Free return tickets will be granted by the Lake Shore railroads to persons in attendance at the meeting. A programme of the arrangements will be sent on application by mail to the secretary, M. B. Bateham, Paines-viile, Ohio.
