New York City Trip

The Community League of St. Mary Medical Center hosted an Out & About trip on Wednesday, September 29, to The Frick Collection in New York City. Internationally recognized as a premier museum and one of the top attractions in New York City, the Frick Collection evokes the splendor of the Gilded Age (1870s to about 1900) and at the same time testifies to the power of great art collections that inspire viewers today. Prior to the visit to The Frick Collection, travelers enjoyed a three-course lunch at the spectacular Loeb’s Boathouse Restaurant in Central Park. frick

Hortulus Farm 

10441958_372781689555159_1803393380779744657_n Hortulus Farm’s landscape merges with naturalized shrubs and perennials along a stream and woodland. Particularly notable later in the season is a spendidly conceived kitchen garden. This 18th century 100-acre working farmstead is home to a colorful diverse family of farm animals, including horses, sheep, chickens, ducks, swans, guinea fowl, and pheasants. Founded in 2005, the Hortulus Farm Museum is a public showplace for the owners’ collection of Bucks County Impressionist paintings.

Northern Italian Wine Pairing Dinner

IMG_3315

We learned how to prepare a delicious4-course dinner by owner Denis Chiappa. Wine expert Michael Conti chose five wines that pair beautifully with spinach and ricotta gnocchi with tomato butter sauce; shrimp in tomato caper sauce over risotto;pan roasted chicken with braised greens; caramelized onion and truffle jus; and chocolate dipped cannoli with ricotta filling. The wine was paired to match, skewing slightly more to big reds that stand up to the bold flavors on some Italian signature dishes.

The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne and Other Exhibits at The Barnes Foundation with Lunch at Jack’s Firehouse

best Premiering at the Barnes Foundation, this tightly curated exhibition, for which we had a private guide, charted a thematic and chronological sweep of Cézanne’s still-life painting. We also enjoyed an audio tour of the Barnes Foundation’s permanent art collection that contained 69 works by Cézanne including 16 still lifes. After touring the Barnes, we traveled to 19th century Jack’s Firehouse in the Fairmount area of Philadelphia for a 3-course lunch. Much of the original mahogany interior, wood plank floors, and even the brass fire pole remain intact to provide one of the most unique dining settings in the region. 

Annie B’s Kitchen “Back to the Grill”

IMAG1102 Our favorite summer pastime–grilling indoors or out. We learned to make new and different meals all hot off the grill. Summer Vegetables, Sweet Corn on the Cob, Grilled Paella, Kebabs, Grilled Pizza, and Desserts! Great tastes combined with the smoky flavor that grilling imparts.

Downton Abbey Exhibit at Winterthur

da

This fun day started with a tram tour of the beautiful garden filled with color as the dogwoods, viburnum, rhododendrons, and azaleas are in full bloom. At the Winterthur Estate, guests enjoyed an array of elegant rarely-seen rooms used by the duPonts for entertaining plus beautiful spring floral displays. Costumes of Downton Abbey is an original exhibition of exquisite designs from the award-winning television series. Approximately 40 historically inspired costumes from the show were displayed and supplemented by photographs and vignettes inspired by the fictional program and by the real-life at Winterthur. Lunch was enjoyed at the Buckley Tavern immediately following the tours.

Lights of Love_thumbnailLights of Love 2013 – a great success! Making the season a lighter and brighter one!

Once again the perennial favorite holiday fundraiser was a great success. For just $5.00 a light,  the St. Mary Christmas Tree was all a glow. Located in the lobby, each light represented the name of a person honored. The lights of this beautiful tree spread joy to all patients, visitors and colleagues and has become a St. Mary tradition created by the Community League. Although the lights and tree are gone, each person who was honored continues to be on display, inscribed on a scroll in the chapel through 2014.
