This special evening for Friends of The Stone House will include ceremony, a look back at the year and a time to offer words of encouragement, advice and wisdom for the year ahead. And of course, an amazingly scrumptious meal in true Stone House fashion.
Friends are those who have made a five-year pledge of financial support to The Stone House. They – YOU – are the bedrock of our ability to stay alive and well in weird economic times. Not yet a Friend and been meaning to become one? You can become one today, just click here.
