Terrific Gathering Saturday Night

20190427_192334The 18th Annual Dinner and Silent Auction was another great affair. It’s always a good sign when the noise volume in the room gets loud with conversation and laughter!

The musicians – Haley Hewitt, Bill Zinni, Bill Cole, Ken Levine, and guest banjo-picker Steve Brewer – shared their tremendous talents as guests joined the party and strolled through the Silent Auction items available for bidding.

The Eagle Hill dining hall staff, under leadership of Kathey Stone-Johnson, prepared a scrumptious meal. Lots of great compliments on the food, especially the scallops with shiitake mushrooms.

This year we proudly served locally produced beer from Lost Towns Brewing in Gilbertville and wine from Agronomy Farm Vineyard in Oakham. Attendees continue to rave about having great local beer and wine to share.
