JAY MOUNTAIN RETREAT | AN AFTERNOON BENEFIT FOR AARCH | GLEN OVERLOOK | JAY
Please join AARCH staff, board members, and special guests for an exceptional summer afternoon at the Glen Overlook.
This unique complex and its surrounding landscape architecture were designed and built over several decades by philosophy professor Paul Desjardins, for retreats, residential work/study programs, and small conferences. The main building was designed as a rustic retreat center to enhance a sense of introspection, history, and community in nature.
To ﬁt with the theme of this special, reﬂective place, we are delighted to have renowned author Russell Banks and poet, publisher, and professor, Chase Twichell as our special guests for the afternoon.
We’ll also enjoy locally distilled spirits from the Gristmill Distillery in nearby Keene, makers of Black Fly Bourbon and Black Fly Maple Whiskey. A genuinely homegrown distillery, each batch of handcrafted, aged whiskey and bourbon is entirely sourced, mashed, and distilled locally. With water straight from the spring within a few feet of the front door, corn grown by Adirondack Organic Grains in nearby Essex, and the brandy apples grown, picked and pressed fresh by Rulf’s Orchard, less than thirty-ﬁve miles down the road in Peru. Enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, friendly conversation and music by the Wickmoore Jazz Trio. We can’t wait to see you there!
The event begins at 3:30 p.m. and should conclude around 6:30 p.m.
Individual tickets are $125 per person. Young Preservationist tickets are $40 (ages 30 and under). Price includes individually packed delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, refreshments, a tour of the Glen Overlook, and the chance to mingle and chat with our special guests.
