The Friends of Rye Nature Center hosted a frightfully successful Oktoberfest last Friday. Co-chairs Annie Teillon, Aubrey Cashion, Caitlin Layng, and their committee of 33, hosted the Nature Center’s biggest fundraiser to date, with some 500 supporters in attendance.
Guests enjoyed the sounds of Amber Anchor, the ambience of a Secret Biergarten, and a main tent whose dazzling décor and clear-top roof with majestic views of the changing foliage was the perfect backdrop.
Cheers to Joe Vicidomini of The Craftsman and The Oath, Fire Island Brewery, Harrison Wine Vault, and G. Griffin Wine and Spirits for serving some of the tastiest local beers and German wines around; and three stars to Fleischer’s Craft Butchery, The Kneaded Bread, and Marcia Selden Catering for great cuisine.
Some came ready to party in lederhosen and dirndls, all came to hail the great cause of environmental education and conservation.
