DVTA Summer Picnic, a Free Event for All Members

Thursday, August 14, 2014  – 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM

Come celebrate summer on the beautiful grounds of Appleford Estate. Surrounded by 24 picturesque acres, the sprawling fieldstone structure is a handsome example of early Pennsylvania farmhouse architecture dating back more than 300 years. The property, originally part of a land grant from William Penn, is carefully maintained as an arboretum and bird sanctuary. With its blossoming trees and boxwood gardens, stone walls and clear streams, Appleford provides a serene sense of beauty in every season.

Ample parking is available at the end of the long tree-lined drive, a few hundred yards from the house and gardens. Join us on the terrace to enjoy the charm and warmth of this historic Villanova estate and meet old friends and new members in a spectacular setting. The renown Trio Crisol ( will once again entertain us with Latin-American music, providing an ideal background for the enjoyment of the food that the famous Philadelphia restaurant, Taquitos de Puebla ( be preparing on site. Our luscious menu will include tacos al pastor, as well as chicken, mushroom, squash flower and potato quesadillas. Beverages are included. Guest numbers are limited, so reservations are required.

All current, paid DVTA members will receive an “Anyvite” email invitation for this free event, at which point they can respond for themselves and any guests.
