The Society of the Four Arts


Our annual Welcome Back Reception provided the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones. Approximately 150 guests heard about the exciting programs and events planned for our special 25th anniversary season as they enjoyed food and beverages while mingling in the beautiful Four Arts Gardens. Teachers who attended last summer's Facing History and Ourselves seminar in Boston on scholarships provided by the Fellowship expressed their appreciation and shared their experience with the crowd.
