Smooth Sailing Down to Palm Beach: The Preservation Society’s January Soirée

Hosts Kevin Clark & James Berwind


Gathering at the architecturally gorgeous, Moorish inspired house of James Berwind and Kevin Clark, NewPalmers who support the Preservation Society of Newport were there to hear the report on the 2017 activites and successes of The Society. And to greet one another and enjoy delightful passed hors d’oeuvres, and music!


Ray & Pam Murphy

As members, Board members and officials oohed and aahed over the Moorish-Spanish architecture of the very special waterfront house at Tarpon Cove, Palm Beach, the waves were lapping and the guests were clapping at the very postive report by President of the Board Monty Burnham, while  CEO Trudy Coxe sat and smiled.


Jack & Linda Purdy


The most exciting news was the granting of the permit for the new Visitors Center at The Breakers, as well as another record attendance at the Mansions for the year.


Susan Stautberg & Erin Manning

It appears that it will be smooth sailing up North for the Preservation Society’s ongoing programs and activities. Listening, and applauding were Susan Ross, Susan Stautberg, Carol Epstein, Bill and Nancy Wilson, Rochelle Ohrstrom and Axel Langhorst, Karl and Teryn Weintz, Dick Burnham, Mary van Pelt, Nancy Brickley, Earl Stubbs, and Sarah and Bernard Gewirz.
