Pleasure Before Business At Tanglewood Business Partners Holiday Gathering
Lisa Green reports from Lenox. There are many benefits to becoming a Tanglewood Business Partner (TBP), not the least of them attending the holiday gathering on Monday, December 1 at Eastover Resort and Retreat. The muddy drive (leftover from the Thanksgiving snowfall) and chilly temps were a far cry from the usual Tanglewood conditions, but inside the recently transfigured Eastover, it was as warm as a picnic on the lawn. Tanglewood is the single most important catalyst to the region’s tourism industry, and the Tanglewood Business Partners support the music festival and its integral role in the life and economy of the Berkshires. Business owners mingled with representatives of the BSO and enjoyed drinks and appetizers courtesy of Eastover. Shown above: Yingxing Wang, Eastover co-owner and manager; Kim Noltemy, BSO chief marketing and communications manager; and Nancy Fitzpatrick, owner of the Red Lion Inn and co-chair of Tanglewood Business Partners.
