25th Season Launched with Gala Celebration!

Over 200 attended the b-b-b-Big Bash on Saturday, August 10th at Weatherwatch Farm. There was a dramatic moment at the outset, when a squall roared through, sweeping tablecloths off the tables and overturning the flower vases, jeezum crow! All rallied to hang sidewalls around the tent, as quick as you could say “Jack Robinson.” Then sun came out, and the party began in earnest!

Inora Brass played for an extended happy hour while folks chatted with friends, strolled the grounds, bid on cool stuff in the silent auction, and bought raffle tickets for various gift cards. It did not take long for 100 bottles of wine to disappear in the wine pull. We dined well on smokey BBQ by Joe Lewis, with special treats provided by Louise Laplante, Josh Vaillancourt, Jerry Rambach, and Wayne LaPier. Steve Martin called the live auction during dessert. Finally, as dark descended, Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble came onstage to play, and we danced the night away……

Big heartfelt thanks go out to all who attended and participated in the fund-raising games, as well as to those who sent donations in lieu of attending. Deep appreciation, too, for the generosity of our sponsors. We had 100% participation by our board, plus numerous volunteers working the event. Together it all added up to a major success. Thank you all so very much!
