Cos Cob, CT - On a May morning, thoughts were already turning to the holidays as the 2014 Antiquarius leadership committee convened with an elegant breakfast meeting at the home of Samantha Moro. Antiquarius, the Greenwich Historical Society's most important annual fundraiser, is off to a roaring start with a bevy of talented organizers. Carrie Wallack, Lisa McAtee and Beth Taylor will serve as co-chairs of the Winter Antiques Show Preview Party. Mother/daughter design team Sandra Morgan and Laird Morgan Tolan (2013 co-chairs) will once again manage the Holiday House Tour, with Catherine Tompkins and Elizabeth Lake co-chairing House Tour Hostess Coordination and Kera Renuka serving as House Tour Head Hostess. Roxanne Vanderbilt returns to author the tour home descriptions. Holly Cassin will again co-chair the Holiday Boutique with new co-chair Catie Salyer. Also returning, Alicia Laing will coordinate media and Rachel Kelley will co-chair Transportation and Logistics. Trustees Lynne Wheat and Suzanne Frank will co-chair the Patron Party.
