It's called the "Spring Fling Social," and so it naturally follows that it will be held at Spring Brook Farm next Wednesday, May 22, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Guests are invited to step onto the picturesque grounds of the Hudson Valley's newest special events venue with the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce for a very special networking event.

Spring Brook Farm is located at 162 South Route 94 in Warwick just past ShopRite and opposite Pennings Farm Market.

You're encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as you meander the exquisite property en foot or on a special horse and buggy ride, make new friends and get to know the chamber's board members

They invite you to wind down from your workday in a rustically chic setting with hearty appetizers prepared by Chef Erik Johansen of the Iron Forge Inn (cash bar available).

And enjoy a special musical performance by Jeanie Cassels and John (Johnny D.) DiSibia of Strings Attached, a popular acoustic rock duo joined by Nailedshutt with Ken Flood, an acoustic Americana musician. They should get you dancing to some of your favorite pop and rock hits.

Local bridal vendors will also be on hand and guests will be eligible to win a variety of raffles and prizes.

"With much excitement, I am looking forward to showcasing our new wedding venue to The Warwick Chamber," said Spring Brook Farm Owner Marie Pennings. "We provide a unique atmosphere for all your special entertaining needs."
