CHS welcomed fall this year with a very successful Patrons' Dinner on September 21st. We were lucky to have perfect indian summer weather. This year's site was the beautiful home of members Tom and Joanne Fillippo. Aquilante Caterers provided a delicious buffet for 149 of the Historical Society's members and guests. A selection of antique cars was on display, and, new this year, silent and live auctions added to the fun.
 
Many thanks to John Pittock for providing wonderful photos of this year's event.
