2015 Hite Of Excellence: Dinner Series Kick Off Party

February 7, 2015

Every year Belle Grove Plantation presents a series of exclusive tours and events we call the “Hite of Excellence Dinner Series.” The series includes intimate dinner parties, casual gatherings, and chances to go behind-the-scenes at Belle Grove and many will sell out quickly. The Kick Off Party is your first opportunity to purchase these prized tickets. The party also include an open bar, sumptuous appetizers, a silent auction, and a 257 birthday celebration for Major Isaac Hite, Jr., owner of Belle Grove Plantation who was born February 7, 1758.

Valentine’s Day Dessert Party for Prospective Volunteers

Have you been looking for an opportunity to meet new people, participate in lifelong learning, and provide meaningful community service? Belle Grove Plantation offers all of these and more to members of its volunteer Docent Guild and Service League.

If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please join Belle Grove’s staff and volunteers for a special Valentine’s Day Dessert Party at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, February 11 at the historic 1797 Manor House. Those who attend will sample delectable homemade desserts, enjoy an insider’s tour, and meet current Belle Grove Docent Guild and Service League members. Belle Grove is seeking volunteers to serve as tour guides, special event assistants, and front desk, office, and museum shop aides for the 2012 season. Volunteers at Belle Grove meet visitors from around the world, learn about Shenandoah Valley history and heritage, enjoy potluck socials, attend lectures, and participate in occasional bus trips to other historic sites.
