Raynham Hall Museum held its fabulous fund raiser at Planting Fields on Feb. 6, and Rebecca Finelli, co-chair said, “It went well. Most people liked having it at Planting Fields Coe Hall mansion. It’s a lovely place and has a romantic atmosphere which went with the theme of the event – Valentine’s Day. We were delighted to have Barbara Ernst Prey as our honoree. She has been a very generous supporter of the museum for quite a while. She is a lovely individual, and a friend of Raynham Hall and we thought it was a great year to honor her.”
