WILMINGTON, MA — Watch the latest episode of “Talk of the Town” with host Ryan Malyar, WCTV’s Youth & Content Coordinator, featuring quick feel-good stories from around town.
In this episode, Malyar remotely interviews Ginny Bevington, organizer of the “Wilmington-Tewksbury-Billerica Wine Fairies” Facebook group. In this invite-only group, members gift each other with bottles of wine, beer and liquor with surprise deliveries.
Bevington created the group based on an idea from her cousin who lives in Maryland. She wanted to come up with a fun way to give gifts to many of her working and homeschooling mom friends. She invited her friends, who invites their friends, and the Facebook group has quickly reached approximately 2,000 members. Once in, members identify what town they live in, announce their wine preferences, give their address, and notify the group when they’ve been “wined” (had wine dropped off).
Bevington is glad she started the group, which has been well-received. It’s been a fun way for the community members to remain connected while socially distancing. She may even continue it after the pandemic ends.
“99.9% of the comments I get from members have been appreciative,” she told Malyar.
