On a cool September evening, friends of the Taber Museum gathered for the Museum's first ever garden party. The garden party was a successful event, drawing nearly 90 guests to the historic Culler Mansion on Vallamont Drive in Williamsport.

Thanks to host Neal Milligan, the home was opened to our guests to view the historic features, antiques and the well manicured gardens. The event was catered by Le Jeune Chef, of the Pennsylvania College of Technology and the guests could choose from hors d’oeuvres that included cold salmon, bruschetta, ham and gruyere cheese cups, chicken bites, fresh fruit and more. Wine was donated by Eiderson Dean and beer by Riepstines Brew Pub.

A silent auction was held. There were a number of auction items including a framed Severin Roesen print, courtesy of the Goldleaf Frame Shoppe, a pair of gold earrings courtesy of Rick Mahonski, theatre tickets to the Community Art League, Penn State game tickets and wine and sweets baskets donated by Linda Lundy and a glass creation by Deb Parsons.

There was music! Violinists Maggie Kemmerer and Marilyn Seeling played in the garden while Kristen Fisher played piano in the home.

Thanks to all who participated to make this a successful event.
