Fall Harvest Dinner and Dance

Our first harvest dinner and dance on October 4 was a great success! The historic carriage barn at the Ellwanger Estate was lovely – old-time stalls converted for fine dining, dancing to the wonderful Zydeco music of Lil’ Anne and Hot Cayenne. Director Christine Froehlich and RCGC pal Nellie Gardner did an outstanding job of decorating the barn to the nines with the richness of the fall harvest.

Many thanks to all of you who worked so hard to make this happen, from the crew who cleaned up the barn to the floral designers, the furniture movers, the people who baked all those wonderful appetizers and desserts, the dinner and cleanup crew…it took a lot of us to pull it off, and it was worth it!

From Director Christine Froehlich, who deserves a huge amount of credit for all her creativity, excellent planning and hard work: “A million thanks for all of your hard work and creative efforts. We couldn’t have pulled this off without your help. I really enjoyed working with all of you! Thanks Again, Chris”
