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.
