Out & About: Fallingwater Twilight Tour
Every year, the Fallingwater Twilight Tour seems to be a bucket-list item for at least one guest.
That one guest at the Aug. 27 event was Debbi Veatch of Westboro, Mass., who left her travel-averse significant other at home and motored her solitary way to Fayette County.
“For my entire life, it’s been on my bucket list,” she said, viewing Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterwork from a scenic outlook above burbling Bear Run. “I’ve seen so many pictures of it, and now I’ve seen it and heard it for myself.”
Guests at the 21 st annual tour were greeted by Fallingwater director Lynda Waggoner, with Tom, and Western Pennsylvania Conservancy president and CEO Tom Saunders, with Lisa Auel. Representing sponsor Huntington Bank was president Susie Shipley, with Neal.
After wine and hors d’oeuvres and casual tours of the main residence and guest house, the crowd of about 260 retired to a nearby meadow for a picnic and jazz vocals by Dane Vannatter, with accompaniment by Max Leake, Tony DePaolis, Thomas Wendt, Mike Tomaro and Marty Ashby.
On the guest list: Susan Fitzsimmons, Lewis and Kate Lobdell, Josh and Marion Whetzel, Eric and Laurie Widing, James and Francine Abraham, Felix Fukui, Caryle Glosser, Jerry and Diane Holder and Terry Graft and Linda Brown of Greensburg.
