I would first like to thank everyone who came out for Honey & The Hog Festival and made it such a great day for our community. It was great partnering with New Hope Ministries, Ferrante’s Pizza, Waterwheel Tea, Good Keeper Farm, Larsen Meadworks, Metropolis Collective and the Dillsburg Farmer’s Market vendors. This type of collaborative event allowed us to create something greater than our individual efforts could achieve.
Personally, I was amazed at the number of families who spent the sunny afternoon on the Plantation grounds listening to music and enjoying the eclectic offerings cultivated by Greg Hildebrand and his crew of volunteers. Putting together this newsletter, I was amazed at the number of classes and events we have on the calendar in the coming months. It seems that this year, the energy and excitement in our organization grows each month.
However, there is still more that needs to be done and it will take all of our efforts to achieve the goals we have set. Therefore, I am asking that you find a way to share NYCHAPS events with friends or relatives. The options are so wide and varied, from working with fiber, to constructing a stone oven or enjoying one of the many musical programs. NYCHAPS truly has something for everyone and with your help, we can make sure even more people know about them and our efforts to preserve and promote the history of Northern York County.
