More than 200 Arboretum supporters braved the threat of rain to attend the 2nd annual Magic in the Meadow, Adkins Arboretum’s annual fall fundraising gala. Though the weather prevented any stargazing, the crowd was wooed by the silky voice of Chestertown lawyer Dan Saunders, singing the best of the 50s. Scrumptious delicacies prepared by Brian Schmidt of Garden and Garnishes kept the bidders nourished through the bidding of a silent and live auction. Thank you to auctioneer Cal Gray for keeping the bidding going all for a good cause, the children and adults that Adkins Arboretum serves each year through its education and recreational programs focused on promoting land stewardship and the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay.
