winterestatelynch

Thanks to everyone who made the 2018 Winter Formal a smashing success! The Stevens Estate was the perfect backdrop for the event. Huge thanks to the Stevens staff, the Wolverine Jazz Band, New England Vintage Arts Society, and our GBVS vendors and volunteers.  Post your pictures on our Facebook group.  It was such a great night that we have decided to make it the venue for next year’s 2020 Roaring Twenties New Year’s Party! Info to come soon. This will be the most spectacular event to celebrate the birth of the 21st century Roaring 20’s!

For those new GBVS members that have joined, we will be posting our 2019 calendar by the end of December. GBVS events are over for this year, but we will be back starting January with winter social activities, the “White Lightning Ball”, the not to be missed “Newport Art Deco Weekend” and more!
