Tank_top_Wine_Walk

Tank tops, created by Cheryl Schmidt, of Pillar Construction, will be for sale on Thursday, June 20. Available in light or dark gray, they say “Wine me up, then let me loose.”

Chetek will host a wine walk on Thursday, June 20, with proceeds supporting the Chetek Liberty Fest fireworks, with new, special, etched wine glasses and wine walk tank tops for sale.

Sponsored by Pillar Construction Group, the wine walk runs from 4–7 p.m., with a drawing for prizes at Main Street Park at 7:15 p.m. Read more about all that is going on, below.
