The Garden Club of Newtown would like to thank McLaughlin Vineyards and staff for hosting our Fall Luncheon.
We couldn’t have chosen a more perfect venue to kick off our garden club year. This pastoral setting with patio overlooking the vineyard is a real treasure and we highly recommend it for meetings and private events.
