Peerless Rockville’s 2014 Awards and Open House

Peerless Rockville hosted its 35th annual Awards Ceremony on December 7, 2014 in the Red Brick Courthouse. The ceremony was the opening act for our annual Holiday Open House, held each year to thank our members, and others, for their support. To that end, the 1891 Red Brick Courthouse was festively decorated for the holiday season.

Many thanks to the local businesses who contributed to the festivities in the historic Courtroom on the second floor:  music by the Montgomery College Jazz combo; centerpieces by All Seasons Florist; and, refreshments donated by Clyde’s Tower Oaks, Dawson’s Market, Rodman’s, Starbucks and Vie de France.

With over 150 people attending throughout the afternoon, this year’s Open House was a lovely way to celebrate our city’s heritage and enter the holiday season.
