On an early fall evening, Saturday, Sept. 17, Celebrate Great Falls Foundation held its festive gathering, Mingle at the Mill, in the ambiance of the historic Colvin Run Mill. The operational water-powered mill, circa 1811, provided a beautiful setting where guests relaxed with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails that featured ingredients produced and sold at the mill.
Over 100 people attended the event, highlighted by special mill tours, a distillery demonstration, and the opportunity to connect with friends. A local band, The Fairlington Raccoons, led by Shelley Burns, played Americana tunes that filled the grounds of Colvin Run Mill with nostalgic music.
The event also featured a silent auction with donations from Brightview Great Falls Assisted Living, Celebrate Great Falls Foundation, Classic Wines, Costa Dentistry, Friends of Great Falls Library, Great Falls Farmers Market, John Nugent & Sons, L'Auberge Chez François, The Old Brogue, Irish Pub, and Stone Tower Winery.Proceeds from the event benefitted Friends of Colvin Run Mill.
