The Greenbrier Historical Society’s 14th Annual Stellar Evening fundraiser proved once again to be a “stellar” time! We had a wonderful evening with dancing, good food and a fun atmosphere! Thank you to everyone who helped make it a success!

The Lewisburg Elk’s Country Club was beautifully arranged and decorated by members of the Greenbrier Historical Society and the staff of TLP, Inc. Festive candles surrounded by live greenery and antique Christmas balls sat on each table – bringing classic Christmas charm to the decorations. The tables were generously provided by Carnegie Hall and St. James Episcopal Church while the linens were supplied by Gillespie’s Flowers and Productions.

The music played by Trio Grand began softly while guests enjoyed hors d’oeurves and drinks and caught up with old friends. A very talented group, Trio Grand, played a variety of soft jazz and Christmas music during the delicious dinner and dessert served by TLP. After dinner, up-beat tempos began and couples took to the dance floor for the rest of the evening. Although there were several talented dancers among us, no one had to be Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers to have a good time!
