Torne Valley Vineyard Luncheon

Members rounded out a very busy October on the 29th with a lovely luncheon outdoors at Torne Valley Vineyard in nearby Hillburn, New York. The weather cooperated and the fall colors in the hillside were astounding. The band, Backyard Pool Party, provided lively music. Many thanks to Joan who organized the day and decorated our table with gourds and flowers––providing the perfect Fall touch.
