Guests went from the historic, 104 foot yacht “Freedom”, built in 1926 and magnificently restored and owned by Earl McMillen and Elizabeth McMillen (she a Trustee), to “Wild Kingdom”, Mr. Carr’s season beauty, sipping winesand eating catered hors d’oeuvres.  It was a particular celebration for the important organization, part of The Newport Renaissance of 2016.

 

Gathering on the dock 


Preservation Society's 
CEO Trudy Coxe addressed the happy guests, giving out the extraordinary figures and welcoming them as well as thanking the hosts and guests  profusely.  Mr. Carr praised Newport Hospital, NUWC and The Preservation Society as the most important entities in the city, going on to thank the staff of Preservation for their exceptional hard work, which met with great applause.

 

Friends greeted friends, looked at the beautiful views from the yachts, and
