20th Anniversary Celebrations

From the Cobblestone Connections newsletter, Vol 16. No. 4:

Fall 2017 was a BUSY time here at Cobblestone Springs!! We held our annual fall dinner fundraiser on Sunday, October 1. It was a beautiful fall day to welcome our diners.

See more photos below this post.

Almost a hundred people attended the open house. It was wonderful to welcome so many former board members, volunteers, neighbors, and friends into the place they have helped to create. Those who came (and many others who weren’t able to attend that day) are the “living stones” that have made Cobblestone Springs a reality.

Then, five days later, we held our 20th Anniversary Benefit Concert, Acoustic Harvest, at St. Michael’s Church, featuring Jacqueline Henry-Ross playing classical guitar and Paul Jacob doing seasonal readings from his book, Nomadic Devotion. The classical guitar was amazing, and Paul’s selections, moving and memorable.

Thanks to all who worked, and those who visited, for making our anniversary such a success!
