Teacher Appreciation Week at St. Clair Winery
It’s been said that teaching is the single most important profession, and we agree. We at St. Clair Winery in Deming have planned a week-long event to pay tribute to teachers in the local community and surrounding area.
“It’s a labor of love.” noted Tasting Room Manager, Lora Robinson. “I know teachers in the community and they all put their heart and soul into what they do, this is just a small thank you.”
It’s not an easy job—with long hours, always changing standards, and stressful evaluations. But educators all over the nation overcome these challenges and make a difference in people’s lives.
“I remember arriving to New Mexico at eleven years old,” recollects Proprietor, Florent Lescombes. “I didn’t know a single bit of English—and there I was, enrolled into Mrs. Saunder’s fifth grade class at Alameda Elementary. It was such a supportive environment, within months I was well on my way.”
As a small token of gratitude to those who do so much, starting Monday, May 1st through Friday, May 5th, we invite teachers to stop by the tasting room in Deming and enjoy a 30% discount on your entire purchase—served with a side of ‘thank you’. We just ask that you bring your school ID.
Lora and crew will be finishing up the week with Teacher’s Night on Friday, May 5th . We invite the public to join the free event from 6pm-9pm on our lush front lawn, with live music by “Wait For What?” A selection of local wines will be on special for $5 a glass, while teachers will enjoy their additional 30% discount on both glasses and to-go bottles.
We urge the community to take the time to say thank you to teachers, whether it’s at the event, or simply in daily life.
