It’s our annual Summer Luncheon program.

Elaine Pontious will play the harp and accompany, our Regional Coordinator, Rose Nester, on songs from the British Isles and Austen’s own song collection.  Attendees will be invited to sing “Robin Adair”, the only song cited in an Austen novel, at the conclusion of the program.
