Congratulations to those behind the Service Club’s Day on the Terrace 2020, which took place on the first Monday of August, as it always has, with members and local celebrities modeling new fall fashions as they always have. There was even an audience of 200  lunching ladies to applaud the mannequins as they strolled down the runway. However, they were definitely socially distanced: luncheon was served in restaurants­­—Marchesa and Gibson’s­­­—plus ­­a few private dining rooms, and the runway action was pre-taped at Tom Kehoe’s Black Oak Productions.
