Clermont’s Red-and-White Pre-Dinner Party Reception
The Friends of Clermont‘s festive Valentine’s dinner parties at an assortment of wonderful nearby houses was preceded on Saturday, February 14 by a red-and-white reception at the Robert Livingston historic site in Germantown. Alas, most of the furnishings at this most graceful of riverfront houses were under dust covers, as serious bucking up of the chimney in the main sitting room is presently underway. But that didn’t seem to bother stalwart Clermont supporters like Beatie Perry (left head-to-head with Rural Intelligence’s own Dan Shaw). The beneficiary of this occasion is the gardener’s cottage, renovation of which is scheduled to begin in the spring. The dinner party hosts included Tracie and Wint Aldrich, Janice Barringer and Rick Griner, Deborah and Peter Barrow, Joan Davidson, John Dobkin, Frank Faulkner and Philip Kesinger, Adelia and Charles Geiger, Alison Guss and Ric Lewit, Kat and Mark Lichter, Hermes Mallea and Carey Maloney, and Mary Ellen Ross and Vern Bergelin.
