“Live the History…Share the Stories.”

Date: Saturday, October 5, 2019
Location: Schooley Mill Meadow

The event will have a farm-to-table feel that will celebrate our rural history, recognize the past 75 years of Foundation accomplishments, and welcome new members of our growing community. A cocktail hour before the dinner will feature a special cocktail from Catoctin Creek Distillery and a grazing table from Market Table Bistro. The family-style meal will be prepared by Jason Lage of Market Table Bistro with food donated by Loudoun farmers.

The program will include remarks from Allen Cochran, President of the Loudoun Preservation Society, and music from the Short Hill Mountain Boys and the 8th Green Machine Division Band. Locally crafted, live-edged farm tables from Waterford Reservations will be set with flowers arranged by the Corner Store Studio. Swag bag donations from Catoctin Presbyterian Church.
