What happens when you combine the beautifully reimagined Walter Jones library space with the women of Moses Brown? You get a festive night filled with fun and friendship!
Ladies’ Night Out is a long-standing tradition at MB – a time for all the female staff, teachers, parents, guardians, etc. to connect and have a casual celebration. This past September 28 was no exception. After weeks of planning and anticipation, the community came together and had a wonderful time.
The refurbished Walter Jones Library was the perfect spot. Warm and inviting, everyone felt comfortable and welcome. Add some simple fall décor and you’ve got a delightful gathering spot. Hors d’oeuvres were delicious and easy to handle, no need for plates and silverware when you’re with friends.
Keeping with our “library” theme was fun and easy. Anne Krive and Ruffin Powell, our fantastic librarians, loaned us their inviting space and had book recommendations available. A community book swap was a fun addition to the night as well, helping the ladies to meet new friends and get a great book at the same time!
Thanks to the generosity of the community, including Dawn Tripp, Elizabeth Lane, Mindy Cox, the Development and Alumni Relations office and the Moses Brown Bookstore, wonderful door prizes added a nice surprise to the evening.
With help from a tremendous planning committee and friends – Laura Phillips, Lisa Donahue, Charlene Cassese, Susan Plumb and Kimmy Samways – the night went off without a hitch. It was fantastic to see so many old and new friends join together for a comfortable night of conversation and relaxation.
