Mill Neck Designer Showcase Lecture Series

MillNeckFamilyThe Mill Neck Family of Organizations recently announced the Designers’ Showcase 2015 Lecture Series. Sponsored by Anton Media Group, lectures and demonstrations will occur throughout the “Signs of Spring” Designers’ Showcase 2015, and will feature mini presentations by local historians, architects, home décor experts, as well as local businesses who will provide special experiences which appeal to the senses.

Highlighting the services Mill Neck Family provides to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, Saturdays during the showcase will collectively be referred to as “Sign Language Saturdays.” Every Saturday afternoon will include a 2 p.m. sign language interpreted docent-led tour of the showcase. Interpreters from Mill Neck Interpreter Services have generously volunteered their time to interpret the tours. For interested visitors, following the tour, a short lesson in American Sign Language will occur at 3 p.m. in the lecture space. Lectures and tours are included with general admission. Additional lectures will continue to be added to the schedule regularly, so please check for the most up-to-date listings.

The Designers’ Showcase 2015 runs through June 14. It takes place at the historic Mill Neck Manor House, residing on an 86-acre estate located on Long Island’s North Shore. Proceeds will benefit Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf, part of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations.
