Save the Dates:

July 16, 2017, Sunday:  Strawberry Festival and more.  You've all seen Antiques Road show on PBS, well, we'll have our own version just for you!  Bring your treasured item for an informal appraisal by experts.  For the kids, a display of Big Machines will be here for kids of all ages to explore and see a live demo!  Plus Music, Games, Fire Department and, of course, delicious Strawberry Shortcakes!

September 16, 2017, Saturday:  Help us celebrate the completion of our patio/grindstone project with a Gathering in the Field party.  Detail to follow.

September 17, 2017, Sunday:  Walking Tour of Mill Hollow.  The newly restored millstone which will be placed on our beautiful new patio (thanks to David Posa who is earning his Eagle Scout Award) came from an old mill along the Titicus River near Keeler Lane, thanks to the generosity of Jackie and Peter Kamenstein. Learn more about this area with our walking tour of Mill Hollow.

October 2017:  Annual Meeting and Pot Luck Dinner.  Purdys, it's your turn!  We are planning a presentation on old Purdys......stayed tuned for details!


Annual Meeting 2016:  We had a packed house for our annual meeting on October 28.   To all our new members - thank you for joining!

The buffet was plentiful, speakers delightful (Bobby Tompkins, Ray Furlan and Drew Outhouse) and the tables full!

The presentation on Croton Falls included dozens of photos from the last turn of the century.

     

Cat Ridge Day and the newly restored receiving vault:

While the balloon did not get off the ground, we still had a wonderful time at the Strawberry Festival last year.  Thank you to the Croton Falls Fire Department, Jo Ann Brown (spinner), Michael Blum (balloonist who was there and showed us how it all works, when the weather is behaving, that is!), Chez Leonard for delicious hot dogs and everyone else who made the day such fun!  Here are some photos!
