Thank you to all who came and celebrated with us at our Holiday Gathering last Saturday.   On a brisk, sunny afternoon over 400 guests came to welcome the holiday season and enjoy the grounds on our last open day of the season.

Cynthia Battaglia's Distinctive Catering kept everyone's spirits high with warm drinks and delightful bites that warmed the soul.

We are truly grateful for the support we receive from our members, guests, donors, board members, corporate sponsors and the community at large.  We could not exist without you! We wish you all a warm and wonderful holiday season.

LongHouse founder Jack Lenor Larsen, looking dapper as always, welcomed guests to our Holiday Gathering.

We love when friends and families come together to visit LongHouse!

The bar looked very festive and was complemented by Mariyo Yagi's piece, "The Spiral Locomotion" behind it.

The Holiday Gathering menu; everything was delicious!

The spicy tomato soup was a hit and kept everyone nice and warm on a chilly afternoon.

Needless to say, the bar was a hit too!

We love the attention to detail that Distinctive Catering delivers.  Their food is always delicious and their staff is top-notch.

One of our visitors' favorite gathering spots in on the plaza in between the Pavilion and Peter's Pond and last Saturday was no exception.

We love when children visit; nearly every event held at LongHouse is child-friendly.

Of course, we love when grown ups visit us as well!

As always, our Yoko Ono Wish Tree was a very popular destination.  The wishes are gathered and sent to the Yoko Ono Peace Tower in Iceland at the end of the year.

Thank you for your continued support, we love you all!
