Oxford & Cambridge Society of Midwest/OUS Midwest - Wine Tasting

About 20 alumni from the Oxford & Cambridge Society of Midwest and OUS Midwest attended what was a grand wine tasting event on Friday 5 June at the Minneapolis Club, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

Oxford & Cambridge Society of Midwest Society Secretary Joel Pace (standing on the right), welcomed all as the event host. Those who attended participated and shared in terrific conversation and a little bit of bubbly - what a fun time, sipping six or seven wines and sharing Oxford days, past, present and future. 

OUS Leeds & Bradford - Visit to Farnley Hall

Some 25 members and guests gathered outside Farnley Hall in North Yorkshire on Wednesday, 3 June for a guided tour of the ground floor rooms of the 17th Century Grade-I listed house.

Farnley Hall is the family home of the Horton-Fawkes family and is a little gem just outside Otley in the Wharfe Valley. The Fawkes family have lived in the Valley for centuries but the hall was rebuilt in the late eighteenth century to a design from John Carr of York for Walter Fawkes.
