Hats Off To The 25th Anniversary Of The Bidwell House

Barbara Palmer reports from Monterey. Spectacular hats were part of the fun at the celebration and fundraising party for the 1700s Bidwell House Museum in Monterey on Saturday, August 15. More than 250 guests enjoyed the beautiful view of the Southern Berkshires from the party tent in the “Stone House” field, listening to the Easy Ridin’ Papas and tasting the fabulous creations of chef Kate Baldwin. The party honored the legacy of Joyce and Lew Scheffey and raised nearly $40,000 for the museum’s operating funds. Actor and part-time Monterey resident Marshall Messer, above left with Playwright Marsha Norman and Designer Michael Keith, served as auctioneer.
