2017 is passing quickly and many successful events have been held. By the time you read this, Fiber Arts Day and Honey and the Hog will have occurred. Hopefully, you were there. We have many visitors to our properties and events. July begins with a bang. Our annual picnic at the Tavern is July 6 at 6 p.m. (shine or rain). Everyone brings a covered dish or dessert, place settings and a lawn chair. Bring a friend or a neighbor for a social evening and hear an update on all that’s happening at the Tavern (which is a lot).
The next night, July 7th, is a summer First Friday. As usual, this is an adults only event. BYOB and lawn chairs. Cost is $10 at the gate. The theme is “Back to the 60’s.” So break out those tie-dye shirts, bell bottoms and love beads and join us for a return to our youth (for some of us anyway). Period music performed by Redemption Road.
NYCHAPS continues to be busy through August and September with WWII Day, Big Band Dance, Balderdash, and Ag Day. Keep your events card at hand or keep checking our website to be in the know.
With everything that’s happening — as always — we need volunteers and funding. Please support NYCHAPS in any way you are able.
Help us to keep bringing history to life.
