Mooneys present meeting to Climbers

The November meeting of the Climbers Club was held in the home of Dr. and Mrs. Spencer Mooney.

Guests approached the home by way of a winding drive through colorful autumn woods.

Dr. and Mrs. Mooney greeted the Climbers as they arrived and invited them to the dining room where hot wassail and an assortment of sweet and savory treats were served.

In addition to hosting the November meeting, the Mooneys also provided the program.

Following introductory comments given by vice president Mrs. Don Estes, Dr. and Mrs. Mooney gave a brief presentation on some of the unique characteristics of architecture and design during the Colonial Period in Virginia.

Their presentation included photographs that were taken in Colonial Williamsburg during the process of planning their own home. The Mooneys also explained the historical context and purposes of many of these design elements.

Following the program, the guests were able to go throughout the home to see how the many, smaller features worked together to create the ambiance of a Colonial Tidewater home.

Estes concluded the program with heartwarming thoughts on the Thanksgiving season.

Assisting as hostesses were Mrs. Lyle Hobbs, Mrs. James Noble, Mrs. James Perkins, Mrs. William Perkins and Mrs. Michael Taylor.
