Fall Luncheon Photos in New York Social Diary
We were thrilled to see our fall luncheon featured in last week's edition of NYSD: "On Thursday, September 23, 100 guests heard AD 100 Interior Designer Thomas Jayne and design journalist Pilar Viladas talk about the design process. The wind howled but the rain held off as guests sipped Champagne and strolled through the historic Jay Estate Gardens newly reimagined by Thomas Woltz."

On October 20th NY State Assemblyman Steve Otis hosted a special workshop at the Carriage House on the state’s Environmental Facilities Corporation water infrastructure grant programs and other clean water financing opportunities.
