Ann Hickey

Ann Hickey

Our cocktail party was held at The View Sept. 18, 2014. This event served the dual purpose of honoring Ann Hickey for her lifetime of service to Piermont, including ten years (and counting!) as a Library Trustee and raising funds for an organization dear to her heart, The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library.

We thank our friends at The View for helping us put together such a lovely evening. We also thank Ned Kelly & Co. for donating a beautiful floral arrangement.
