A Winter Snowball Soiree at Historic Sarke Plantation, circa 1790
“Imagine a cold winter evening from another era, friends gathering in front of the fire, story telling amid the gaiety of all gathered. Outside the winter wind is howling,
but here we dine and imbibe surrounded by glorious white decorations of crystal, snowflake-colored flowers and candlelight. The night is warm indeed.”
Check back for more details and for reservation information. NHPA members will receive a printed invitation.
Every year since 2006, the Nanticoke Historic Preservation has held a gala Fundraiser for the efforts to restore Handsell. The Soiree is held each year during a different season and always at a historic place in Dorchester County. The theme of the Soiree is tailored to the location or other seasonal themes. All the proceeds from the last two Soirees, and all those in the immediate future will benefit the “Handsell Restoration Fund”.
Our Soiree’s in the past have included:
The 2013 End of Summer Soiree was held at private historic Hill’s Point Farm.
2012 Spring “1812 Soiree” at Cambridge House Bed and Breakfast
