This will be a Classic Currier & Ives style Holiday Party, hosted in a festively decorated elegant historic home.

A Women's Choral quartette will entertain us with seasonal songs and carols while we feast on the delights of three themed wine and food rooms. 

• The White Room with white wine and appetizers

• The Red Room for bold winter reds & heartier fare

• The Dessert Room for Delectable Desserts with Dessert wines and Port


• This is a pot luck affair. Please bring your favorite holiday savory appetizer.

• Wine will be no host bar.  You may purchase wine tickets at the door which can be exchanged for wine at each station.  Tickets are $1 each.  Wine cost will vary since we will have a large selection, including Dessert wines and Port! Price range will be from $6 - $10 per glass.

• The event fee covers our cost for the venue, supplies, dessert and Carolers.  

• We encourage you to bring guests.  For our holiday events we have increased the guest quota to 3 per member.  We believe these parties are a great way to show case our club and encourage new membership.

• This is an opportunity to adorn your holiday finery!  Cocktail attire.

    What a fabulous event! Saw old friends I haven't seen in ages, met new interesting people and it was simply an absolutely awesome party on a cold, cold night. Thank you Claire and all the organizers. And please tell us the name of your wine shop on State St. Happy Holidays everyone!

    What a great party! Thank you, all the volunteers who helped me keep the party running smoothly and thank you to all members who brought such delicious appetizers. You always out do yourselves!
    The Bishop's House was a perfect setting for a traditional Christmas party and the Carolers lent a nostalgic and romantic ambiance.
    Next party is New Years!!!! Get your tickets now. If you thought the Holiday party was great, just wait for the New Year Party!

    I was very disappointed to miss the festivities. Parking control wouldn't let me park in the front, sent me around to back parking lot, I got car stuck in snow so I had to head home--didn't want to try to park again :-( Time for snow tires I guess!

    Dave & I will have to cancel our reservations for this weekend. I came home to find that Dave's mother has gone into hospice. We are flying out to visit her this weekend.
    On a brighter note, Congratulations DarRick!

    I would like to come, but I'm signing the papers and getting the keys to my house on the 6th and I'm going to try to get things moved in asap.

      How exciting! But by the time 6pm Saturday rolls around, you'll be ready for a break - don't you think?

    I guess I should've said "yay" or "nay"... I DID think about it, but we had already committed to something that evening. I'm sure it'll be fabulous! Have fun!
