— On April 14, the Warwick Foundation for Excellence in Learning (WFEL) hosted its second annual decade party at the Stagecoach Inn, 268 Main St. in Goshen.

This year’s theme was the Roaring Twenties and for the night guests were sent back in time to that decade. Guests arrived in their Gatsby finest and were treated to live jazz, appetizers, cheese and carving stations typical of that era. Guests were then treated to a champagne toast, courtesy of XDFour before continuing the party inside and dancing into the night.

“On behalf of WFEL I want to thank Faith Ferguson, and the entire staff of the Stagecoach Inn," said Vanessa Holland, the Chair of WFEL. "The Inn was the perfect venue for our 1920's Speakeasy and the service, food and décor was exceptional."
