The three gracious Co-chairs of the Christmas Dinner Dance at The Breakers greeted guests and friends, as Cornelius Vanderbilt looked down from his portrait. The elegant and almost other-worldly Dance at The Breakers is the party that traditionally closes the social year.


And 2016 was indeed the year of the"Newport Renaissance".  Energy abounded, new initiatives and programs were announced by The Newport Restoration Foundation, The Newport Historical Society, The Redwood Library, The  Preservation Society, The Martin Luther King Center, The Newport Art Museum, IYRS,  the Newport String Project, and other organizations. The Broadway district  project was finished, as well.


Coming up on Newport Seen: NewPalmers support charities at the brilliant Red Cross Ball and attend the International Jewelry and Antiques Show in Palm Beach.



There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American. O. Henry
