LongHouse Reserve welcomed more than 200 guests at their annual Holiday Gathering on Sunday, November 28th. Friends and families sipped hot chocolate or warm mulled (or hard) apple ciders, and enjoyed Dreesen’s famous freshly baked donuts. Horticulturist Holger Winenga and docents led tours of the winter blooming witch-hazels and the Red Garden, and there was a bonfire outside to help stay warm. Families with children, old supporters and new friends mingled. The Drinkwater Brothers performed on guitar with LongHouse board vp, Lee Skolnick making a special cameo. Other Board Members in mingling included Dianne Benson, Dr. Derick George, Nina Gillman, Peter H. Olsen, Suzanne Slesin, and James Zajac.
