Evening of Spirit – Wine Tasting

Our Evening of Spirit – Wine Tasting Event last night was a great success. Over 130 people were here and everyone had a good time. For many of those who attended, this was the first time they had ever been at OLC. We hope they will be back.

The Evening of Spirit was a kickoff event for a year of celebrations in honor of the 60th anniversary of OLC. All of the proceeds from this event will go toward installing new and more efficient and environmentally friendly heating, cooling and ventilations systems in the retreat center.

Our Wine Tasting also provided great exposure for the house and we hope that more businesses, organizations, and families will recognize that OLC is the perfect venue for their next event.

We are very grateful to everyone who made our Evening of Spirit such a success! We want to thank our Board President, Bill Husic, the event committee led by Gina Dolan, all our sponsors, donors, our event planner Kymrie Zaslow, wine vendors from Wine Cellars 4, Cafe Louise, Joyce Willing for her desserts, volunteers and staff. This was a team effort and everyone contributed to the making of a fantastic evening for everyone.

We hope you enjoy these photos from the event.

We had a fabulous time at our Miniature Garden Workshop led by Dell Kasinskas. Everyone created their own garden and each one was different and beautiful. A joyous spirit pervaded this whole evening of creativity and fun.

If you missed this fun event, there is still another opportunity to exercise your creativity at OLC this summer at our Paint and Sip Party on July 20. Enjoy a fun night out with friends. Paint and sip while following step-by-step instruction with an experienced and enthusiastic local artist. You’ll leave with a finished, one-of-a-kind creation and a new-found talent you’ll want to explore.

A Year at OLC

A year at OLC is a collection of photos taken on the grounds throughout one year at OLC. The grounds at OLC are a wonderful place to walk, reflect and to appreciate the presence of God in the natural world. Every season is different and beautiful in its own way.
