Marist Nod to Past

Marist School recently celebrated Fourviere Week in recognition of the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Society of Mary, the religious congregation that owns and operates the school. This 200th Anniversary of the Society of Mary is significant for the school because its founding, character and mission happened only because 12 young men, on July 23, 1816, made a promise to form a religious congregation which would bear the name of Mary. Their pledge was made in the small Marian chapel of Fourviere located on a hillside overlooking the ancient city of Lyons. “The Pledge of Fourviere is, in a way, the reason Marist School exists today, and Marist School has played a significant role in the expansion of the Society since that promise was made 200 years ago,” saysd Marist School President Father John Harhager, S.M.

Hollywood at High Hampton

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, High Hampton Inn in Cashiers, North Carolina, offers the perfect summer getaway for families. In fact, it’s so perfect that Hollywood producers have chosen it as the location for the filming of the television series “Dirty Dancing.” Couples and families have flocked to the 1,400-acre resort and golf course for more than 90 years; isn’t it time you found out why? Stepping onto the property is like a trip back in time, but with all the modern conveniences. High Hampton Inn embodies the spirit of the picturesque mountains surrounding it; each of the Inn’s 116 rooms features rustic décor that captures the essence of a time gone by and transports guests to a simpler time. Don’t expect televisions in your room, because the show is outside with a plethora of activities from tennis to hiking. Tea is served every day from 4 to 5 p.m. Guests can choose to dine at the Rock Mountain Tavern or in the Inn’s Dining Room. Local seasonal ingredients drive the composition of the menus. Southern-fried chicken, locally caught rainbow trout and roasted prime rib are standards. HighHamptonInn.com 

Think French

Huff Harrington Fine Art celebrates all things French with a Bastille Day reception on Thursday, July 14th from 6-8 p.m. Paintings from the gallery’s French artists will hang side-by-side with work by American painters inspired by France’s joie d’esprit. The show is free, open to the public and will run through July 28. Guests will enjoy light bites and plenty of rosé. As only the French (or French-inspired!) can do, the show will combine a perfect mix of styles and media – abstract, representational and impressionist with subjects varying from landscapes, still lifes and florals to edgy portraits of waiters caught unawares or a trio enjoying a glass of wine at a quintessential French café. Participating artists include French artists Pascal Bouterin, Lyliane Coiffard, Andree Thobaty and Christian Nepo. American artists include Nancy Franke, Laura Schu. HuffHarrington.com
