Horsehead event a great success!

As the 450 people who attended know, a wonderful party was held at Horsehead on July 28. Josy and Harry Wright hosted a fundraiser for the Jamestown Historical Society Capital Campaign in a location and on an evening that made the glamorous parties in the movies seem insipid.

Gale Bay and her hardworking committee put together food and auctions and entertainment to evoke the turn of the century, when Horsehead was built, including a horse-drawn carriage ride through the grounds. Everything worked beautifully!

The Jamestown community has enthusiastically embraced our efforts to raise money to improve the Jamestown Museum, and this event was a celebration of our success. Thank you to everyone who donated so generously.

Anne Livingston and John

Murphy, co-chairmen
