Spencertown Academy’s Twilight in the Garden

  On Friday, June 24, Madeline Hooper and Ian Hooper (left),  turned up at the Spencertown Academy‘s Twilight in the Garden benefit well prepared.  What they found, thanks to hosts Jerry Croghan and Louis Hedgecock’s spacious barn and adjacent tent, was a waterproof “garden” party in full swing, with sublime food, as always, by the Academy’s all-volunteer in-house caterers, Let’s Eat, and rocking entertainment by singer-songwriter Cathy Grier, aka “the New York City subway girl.”  Friday night’s party was a prelude to Saturday’s lecture by Margaret Roach, of A Way to Garden fame, and the Academy’s 7th annual Hidden Gardens tour.
