Redwood Library Garden Party Honors Its Noble Traditions

Jonna Chewning & Jack Jefferies

 

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” --Jorge Luis Borges

Executive Director Benedict Leca & Chiara Leca

With stylish hats, music and elegant hors d’oeuvres, the Redwood Library & Athanaeum celebrated its annual Garden Party, which seems to be constantly, consistently enchanted when it comes to weather.

The late Sunday afternoon event was blessed with blue skies, patrons, well-wishers, and, this year, the music of the Lois Vaughan Trio on the steps.

Celebrating the Library’s new initiatives, its exhibitions in the Van Alen Gallery and its successful Wednesday Night "Life of the Mind" Salon Series, the welcome by R. Daniel Prentiss, Esq., Board Vice President , and Executive Director Benedict Leca was short and cheerful.

 

Gabriel Leca & Leora Maltz Leca


Seen were Redwood stalwarts and supporters Dr. Garry Fischer, Board Chairman, and Angela Fischer, Ronald Lee Fleming, Captain Nicholas Brown and Diane Brown, Leora Maltz Leca, Jennifer Booth, Jack Jefferies, and young Lecas, Chiara and Gabriel.
