LADIES WHO LUNCH!

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Town & Country Real Estate proudly supports the Ladies Village Improvement Society, INC. One event we particularly enjoy partaking in is the Landmark Committee Luncheon. This year’s Annual Luncheon was at The Devon Yacht Club in Amagansett.

Mother Nature was showing off her powers outside, but the lecture and the company was warm and engaging inside.

Devon celebrated its centennial, so it was fitting that this year the event was moved from The Maidstone Club to Devon. John R. Mackall gave a tutorial on the history of Devon, the Colony, the Club and beyond.

The Devon Colony Estates were built in 1909 as a summer retreat for four wealthy families from Cincinnati. The William Stanhope Rowe House was the largest of the original Devon Colony Houses, called the 7 Sisters. It was built by John Mackall’s great grandfather. Richmond Levering, William Stanhope Rowe, Joseph Rawson and William Cooper Procter were the originators. We all admire their vision and commitment to Amagansett.

Town & Country calls this afternoon our Ladies Who Lunch. We enjoyed a beautiful array of delicious foods prepared by the chefs at Devon.

Happy Anniversary to a very special place with a very special history. Devon and The LVIS forever together.
