Events 2017

NEW DATE - Walking Tour of Mill Hollow.  SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 10:30 to 2:00pm  The newly restored millstone (by Nicky Coschignano of Mind Over Metal) which is mounted 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.  Our hike begins at the society headquarters, the White Elephant, 81 Keeler Lane.  Journey across fields, through woods and down along the Titicus River to “imagine” the hustle and bustle of 150 years ago.  This event is free; however, you may purchase a box lunch from Hayfields Market for only $15.00.  Choices are listed below.  Come with friends & neighbors, but please - no pets!  We will be on private property for most of the adventure.  Note:  you will be asked to sign a release.
