In The Know
More than 400 benefactors will gather Wednesday, May 22, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm to enjoy a green-themed evening of cocktails and conversation at Tudor Place’s 21st Annual Spring Garden Party.
Many will be wearing lavish hats and finery appropriate for an event that is a staple of the spring social season in Washington.
The celebration benefits Tudor Place. This year’s gala, co-chaired by Page Evans and Colman Rackley Riddell, honors attorney Phillips S. Peter, a descendant of the Peter family.
The mansion and its gardens were created in the early 1800s and six generations of descendants continued to occupy and care for it until 1983. Thanks to Peter family foresight, today it is a historic house and garden museum operated for public education and benefit by the Tudor Place Foundation, which hosts the Garden Party.
Washington social and political elites have been drawn to salons, teas, “crushes” and other gatherings at Tudor Place since the mansion’s completion in 1816.
According to Mike DeBonis in Monday's Washington Post, this Saturday, at a rally in Northeast Washington, D.C. Council member Tommy Wells will formally launches his mayoral campaign.
"Wells (D-Ward 6), who announced the noon rally in an e-mail to supporters Monday, is likely to become the second candidate in the race, following fellow Democrat and council member Muriel Bowser. Incumbent Vincent C. Gray (D) has not announced whether he will seek a second term."
It has been wonderful, fabulous, scintillating, inspiring, thought-provoking, and, most of all, fun to have had Rose's art fill Bobbie Medlin these last few years.
Alas, the time has come for her return to her home in Corsica.
Please come and bid her a bon voyage. On this day, new paintings will be making their debut to complement the current work already on exhibition.
As her gift to us, she is offering 20% off on every piece.
This is going to be a very special day!
