On Saturday, June 25th, the HLF Museum held its Annual Opening reception for this summer’s show – The Mansion House Hotel & Cottages. Thanks to the hard work of the entire board and many of their spouses and extended families, this is always a great event to start the summer. The set-up, the food, the flowers and the bartending are all done by volunteers for this event.
This year’s reception was extra-special as we were also celebrating the opening of our newly renovated 2nd floor and the ribbon cutting on the Richard E. Riegel, Jr. Maritime Library. Many members of Jerry Riegel’s family were on hand to celebrate. The museum thanks all the donors who generously supported those efforts. The spaces are amazing. A few special thank yous – Faith and Peter Coolidge and Tom Geniesse to helping underwrite the cost of our wine. To both Barbie and Dicky Riegel for getting their family members there. And, to Pierce for pulling it all off!
