Hospitality, Extending a Warm Welcome

You are invited to participate in the 2015 Mid-Atlantic ALHFAM Conference, March 20-22, 2014. Hosted by the Monmouth County (New Jersey) Park System

Like the rest of the North East, the Monmouth County Park system has been enjoying a little taste of winter.  At the historic sites we have been cleaning our closets and practicing our company manners, getting ready to show the ALHFAMily our best hospitality. Here’s just a glimpse of what you have to look forward to:

Friday, March 20th, half a dozen tours and workshops on a variety of topics; followed by an opening reception featuring regional treats and some wonderful music.  The reception venue is located at the beautiful equestrian facility used by our therapeutic riding program.

Saturday, March 21st, a day of sessions in the Geraldine Thompson mansion, the showpiece of our flagship park, which was reconstructed following a catastrophic fire some years back; followed by a late afternoon visit to Longstreet Farm.  We’ll cap off the day with dinner in the clubhouse at Hominy Hill golf course.  Our dinner speaker is Lisa Laird, from the oldest commercial distillery in the United States, located right here in Monmouth County.  Of course, the evening includes an auction and a chance to show off your favorite period clothing.

Sunday, March 22nd, come back to Thompson Park for breakfast and networking.  If you are fortunate enough to have some additional time to spend, we will work one on one to help you get the most out of your visit.  If you’d like to come back to Longstreet and work with our horses, or work in our summer kitchen we’ll have staff on hand eager to share.  Or visit the wonderful house and mill at Historic Walnford.  If you want to see the new visitor center at Monmouth Battlefield State Park, or visit the charming community of Ocean Grove; we’ll give you a local’s advice on laying out the last leg of your adventure.

The conference motel is the Courtyard by Marriott, on Halfmile Rd in Lincroft, just off the Garden State Parkway at exit 109.
