The Newport Tree Society and The Newport Arboretum honored Newport's fine, unique speciment trees, and the late Ronald Dick, a founder of the organization. Newport is now the only city in the U.S. with its own Arboretum. William Vareika, host, welcomed Congressman David Cicilline and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and scores of guests as his home, Snug Harbor for its "Saplings & Spirits" reception.
Coming up: The Anthony Quinn Foundation Awards, which recognize brilliance in performance and creativity. Young and outstanding artists were honored in its recent ceremony in Bristol, and actor Edward James Olmos was presented with the second Lifetime Achievement Award. The engrossing NY Times bestselling author Michael Gross riveted the audience at the Redwood Library speaking about his new book FOCUS, a tell and analyze-all about famed fashion photographers.
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
"Newport Seen is a window on a very special world."
- Michael Gross, author, Unreal Estate, Rogue's Gallery, 740 Park Avenue, and Focus
"...Like reading Town & Country online."
