SAVE THE DATE: Next Soiree will be the Summer of 2013, but you can donate to the Handsell Restoration Fund anytime!
You just missed the ” 1812 Spring Soiree” , held Saturday, April 28, 2012 at the Cambridge House Bed and Breakfast. 65 guests were entertained by Mr. and Mrs. James Steele, residents of ”The Point” in Cambridge and owners of “Handsell” in 1812, portrayed by actors Carolyn and Monte Hailey. Thank you to the Hailey’s for an amazing performance. If you missed them come to the Jamboree on June 23 for an encore performance! Classical guitarist and harpist Linda Andrews and Betty Boda played music from the 1812 period and a lavish buffet was created by Mollye and Me Catering.
If you wish to still make a donation to the “Handsell Restoration Fund”, please send a check made out to NHPA to: Midge Ingersoll, 5606 Ross Neck Rd, Cambridge, MD 21613. 100% of the money collected from the Soiree goes to restore Handsell.
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:
2007 Spring Soiree – held at Friendship Hall, East New Market
2008 Summer Soiree – held at the Captain Levi Phillips House, Cambridge
2009 Autumn Soiree “After the Hunt” – held at Weston Farms, Vienna
