Dreaming of an evening spent sipping wine and roaming gardens, surrounded by over 100 years of literary history?
Look no further than the 5th annual Ladies Wine Out, on Thursday, May 6, hosted by the Women of Weymouth. The reception will take place outside from 5:30pm to 7:30pm on the grounds of Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities, an evening complete with music and appetizers from Broad Street Bakery and Cafe. Roll the dice in a raffle or join a silent action. You might bring home a quality bottle of wine or win a few prizes donated by local artists and merchants.
Tickets are $20 for members, and 25$ for non members. All proceeds go toward maintaining and improving the historic Weymouth house, a long-time gathering place for writers and artists. A rain date is set for May 13th.
This year a number of local essential workers have been invited to attend as guests. “We want them to enjoy the evening and spend a little time out. It’s a way to give back,” explained Women of Weymouth’s chair Bev Reynolds.
Reynolds believes it will be a relaxing time for everyone. She is also optimistic that the fundraiser may inspire some attendees to become new members of the Friends of Weymouth, an act of support that is dearly needed. “We want people to see their membership is really worth something again,” she said, explaining that with all of last year’s cancelations, members could enjoy few special opportunities. Now, the calendar is filling up again– with events spanning jam sessions to the revival of various literary contests and the writers-in-residence program. It’s looking to be a lively year.
There is something for everyone at Weymouth Center, says Reynolds. Whether it’s the beautiful grounds for walking, riding, or biking, the fascinating history of the place, or the events, most visitors can find something that draws them in.
“There just isn’t really anything like it,” she said. “It’s such a beautiful home.”
