Before the Rain: Housatonic Child Care Celebrates at Linden Hill
On the eve of its 25th annual house tour, the supporters of the not-for-profit Housatonic Child Care Center gathered by pool of Linden Hill, a Lakeville estate with stunning views in every direction. Many of the guests did not have school-age children—or any children at all—which proved once more that community concern as much as enlightened self interest motivates many philanthropic souls in our neck of the woods.
The cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were as elegant as the setting; Diane Lafer and Mary Anrold
