Few things are more satisfying to an event organizer than the day after a successful special event which took months to plan and produce. Preservation Maryland’s June 5 reception honoring the 37 founding members of our Heritage Society is the source of my satisfaction today. The owner-guided tours of Whitehall, the circa 1760 site of the event, were enthralling. Predicted showers held off. Abundant food and libations were enjoyed along with convivial conversation among old friends and new. And, as if on cue, the occasional yacht with sunlit sails, crossed the party’s Whitehall Bay vista.
Thanks to the Brandywine Foundation for making available this remarkable National Historic Landmark with its association to colonial Maryland and the American Revolution for our inaugural Heritage Society event. Special thanks to Heritage Society members who supply generous support for both specific programs and for general operating expenses.
