Twilight in the Garden Party – June 14, 6:00-9:00pm

In the gardens of a private home, new friends meet and old ones greet at this festive kick-off to the summer season. Friends and neighbors paired with delicious food and libations, all served up in a bucolic setting. That is the recipe for the annual Twilight in the Garden Party on Friday, June 14. Cocktails, sparkling beverages, hors d’oeuvres and a scrumptious light supper are served.
