The musical stylings of the popular Trio Grande, who got their start as a musical group at The Greenbrier, will have you dancing the night away.\r\n\r\nThis year\u2019s silent auction has an exceptional variety of very special items. Romney Collins and Lee Street Studios have provided an original oil painting of the North House Museum. Collins started her art career at the tender age of seven when she attended a summer art school in a converted railroad depot in Fairfax, VA. When she came to the Lewisburg area, she studied with Robert and June Anderson and also Daniel Green of the Oil Painters Society of America. She likes to work from real life and sketched this painting of the North House while there and finished it in her studio. She will be teaching classes in oil painting in the spring and summer of 2018 in Studio 6 of the Lee Street Studios. Also in the art category are a framed print of the Reverend Sam Black and a numbered print of \u201cLewisburg, VA\u201d by Edward Beyer.\r\n\r\nFor \u201cfoodies,\u201d an all-inclusive dinner in a circa 1795 house and one at the Old Victorian Inn B&B will be offered. These dinners for eight are exceptional opportunities to share private venues and delicious food with friends. Another offering will be an exclusive wine package.\r\n\r\nThe historical society invites both private and business sponsors for this fund raiser. GHS appreciates the support, at this early date, of the following business sponsors: Farmers Home Fire Insurance and Stroebel and Johnson, PLLC.\r\n\r\nTickets for Stellar Evening are $85 per guest.
