We have recently changed the historical display in the Library conference room to "Taverns, Inns, Hotels and Restaurants."  It shows how in the earlier days these establishments followed two main routes - the post road and the Route 22 corridor, and then there were a few "off the beaten path."  Stop by and see a photo display of some old and a few not so old memorabilia.  There's a map to guide you and more details on each, which will ultimately become a bulletin for our members.  It pays to be a member!  

Please join us Annual Strawberry Festival, Sunday, July 15, 1:00 to 4:00pm.  

At 2:00pm Chris Evers of Animal Embassy will provide a spectacular, one-hour World Wildlife presentation.  Animal Embassy will take families on a journey around the globe with incredible live animal ambassadors.  Explore their diverse habitats and discuss some of the conservation issues and challenges they face.  Animals such as the Eurasian Eagle Owl, African Hedgehog or African Crested Porcupine, a Green Tree Python, an African Sulcata Tortoise, an African Bullfrog and an Australian Mangrove Monitor may join us!  For the softer side of nature, we'll learn about a family of South American Chinchillas.  Animal Embassy enables people of all ages to connect with the natural world with this unforgettable, interactive live animal presentation.  

We will have a display of aerial photography indoors.  Perhaps you'll see your neighborhood before homes were built.  See the open fields and streams.  We are putting together a Then and Now display from the air!  

And, of course, music, games, firemen's burning house and homemade strawberry shortcake!

It's all happening at 81 Keeler Lane!  Join us!

Thanks to all who hiked through Mill Hollow with us.  What a wonderful day!  Here are some photos
