Delaware Valley Alumni Club Longwood Gardens Holiday Gathering
View the Event Photo Gallery.
Once again, the world's premier horticultural showplace served as a festive setting to celebrate the holidays as the Delaware Valley Alumni Club came together for the seventh consecutive year at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa., on December 3. Following a bit of mingling in the lobby of the Visitors Center, a group of 47 Juniatians toured the gardens and a beautiful Christmas display.
After regrouping in the Special Events Pavilion, many Juniatians sat together for the organ sing-a-long of Christmas carols. The day continued with a meal in the Terrace Restaurant where the group found a quiet place to socialize and tell stories from their days at Juniata.
As dusk approached, attendees toured more of the gardens, enjoyed fountain shows set to holiday music, and delighted in a new ice skating show. The dark of night gave way to a wonderful display of lights across the grounds.
Overall, the decades of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s were represented at the event.
