2016 DVTA Annual Meeting and Summer BBQ

2016 DVTA ANNUAL MEETING AND SUMMER BBQAppleford_Fountain
Tuesday, August 9, 2016  –  5:00 PM to 7:30 PM
A free event for DVTA members*

Come celebrate the summer with friends on the beautiful grounds of the Appleford Estate and catch up on a full report on DVTA activities for the year with a glimpse of what’s coming. We have been very fortunate to be able to repeatedly obtain this unique venue, set amidst 24 picturesque acres, with a 300-year-old Pennsylvania fieldstone farmhouse in the heart of a carefully maintained arboretum, surrounded by blossoming trees and boxwood gardens. It’s easy to see why this yearly tradition has become one of the DVTA’s most anticipated and well-attended receptions.

Back by popular demand, we will once again host an “All American Barbecue” featuring the following menu:

Iced Tea, Lemonade and Spring Water
Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and Garden Burgers
Sliced Tomato, Pickles & Onions, Condiments, Rolls and Sliced American Cheese
Potato Chips, Garden Salad, Vinaigrette, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Carrots and Green Peppers

Assorted Brownies, Home-baked Cookies and Watermelon Wedges 

 *Because of the large turnout last summer, this year there will be a small charge for non-members and for children under 12,  which will allow us to be more inclusive and open up the event without incurring a deficit on our operating budget. Corporate members will also be requested to limit their attendance to 2 company representatives.

Prices:
Current, paid DVTA Members:                 Free
Nonmember Guests, Age 13 and Older:  $15
Nonmember Guests, Age 12 and Under: $10

Members and non-members must pre-register via Eventbrite BY AUGUST 3 on the link below:

2015 DVTA Summer Picnic and Networking Event – August 27 from 5:30 to 7:30

Thursday, August 27, 2015 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

CoAppleford_Fountainme 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.

Our theme this year is an “All-American Barbecue” with the following menu:

Iced Tea, Lemonade and Spring Water
Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and Garden Burgers
Sliced Tomato, Pickles & Onions, Condiments, Rolls and Sliced American Cheese
Potato Chips, Garden Salad, Vinaigrette, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Carrots and Green Peppers

Assorted Brownies, Homebaked Cookies and Watermelon Wedges 

Don’t miss this opportunity to come and network with other DVTA members! Check your email inbox for the Eventbrite invitation to this free event.
Space is limited; so, RSVP today!

Location: Appleford Estate
770 Mt. Moro Road
Villanova, PA 19085
Date:        Thursday, August 27, 2015

PLEASE NOTE: Since our space and budget force us to limit attendees to a maximum of 120, it would be unfair to exclude other DVTA members who might want to register to attend if we quickly reach our maximum quota within the first weeks by allowing children and spouses. It should be noted that this is primarily a professional networking event for the benefit of DVTA members,  and would not be set up to offer much in the way of interest or entertainment for children.
