Members-Only Home & Garden Parties in August, September and October; Holiday Party Set for December

Remember when we all knew our neighbors? With such busy lives, neighbors rarely have time to get to know one another anymore…let alone socialize.

garden-tour-18The HWTN Special Events Committee wants to help neighbors get to know each other. Several members have opened their homes this summer for garden parties, with August 23, September 13 and October 11, 2014, socials now on the calendar. And the homes we’ll be partying in are fantastic, historic gems.

The parties are free but are open only to members. Each guest brings a dessert or appetizer as well as their own wine or beer and drink glasses.

Want to know the times and locations? Ready to RSVP? Please check your member emails for details. If you can’t find the info, please email us at for more information.

Also, mark your calendar for our members-only Dec. 12 holiday party, once again hosted by Andy Nunemaker at his incomparable N. Terrace Ave mansion. Details to follow.

Not a current member (our membership year starts Oct. 1)? Then it’s time to become one, so you attend these great member events. Our website offers online and snail mail options to join or renew. Do it today!
