Harpeth Conservancy’s River Swing Patron Party was held on the rooftop of the 511 Union Building in downtown Nashville.

The event was hosted by Waller Law and attendees could look out over the beautiful Cumberland River, one of the waterways in Tennessee that Harpeth Conservancy works to protect.

More than 100 guests were on hand, including River Swing table hosts, sponsors, committee members and Harpeth Protection Society members who give $1,000 or more annually.

Everyone enjoyed beer, wine and the specialty cocktail, the Watermelon Splash, all courtesy of Lipman Brothers.

Attendees were treated to bites from BAM Foods Catering and whiskey tastings from local distillers Happenstance Whiskey, O.H. Ingram River Aged Whiskey and Old Hickory Whiskey.

Harpeth Conservancy CEO and President Dorene Bolze, along with COO and Vice President Grace Stranch, made a few remarks of gratitude for everyone’s support and gave updates on some important issues the organization is working hard to address.

Bolze and Stranch explained about statewide and local upcoming permits with potential impacts on rivers and how to get involved in the processes. Issues with development in and around flood plains were discussed, along with engagement opportunities
