The Schoharie County Historical Society continues to celebrate its 125th Anniversary with a Founders Day Picnic and outdoor concert on Wednesday, July 2, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Music will be provided by Patty and the Mygrains performing an eclectic mix of folk, country, jazz, blues, and salsa. The new Founders Exhibit will be open in the Badgley Museum Annex with guest exhibit curator Peter Lindemann on hand to talk about his research into the men responsible for turning the "old stone fort" into a museum in 1889.
The public is invited to attend this fund-raising concert event with their own picnic food for a nominal admission fee, but a special Picnic Dinner Box prepared by Ralph Buess, former chef of the George Mann Tory Tavern, is available for $25 per person which includes admission. The Picnic Dinner Box includes chicken pot pie; French kraut; tomato, pepper & onion salad; fresh fruit and a "Joe Frogger" molasses cookie, plus coffee or a cold beverage.
Dinner boxes must be pre-paid by Sunday, June 29 via the museum's website, theoldstonefort.org, or by calling the museum (518) 295-7192 during business hours before 4:30 PM Friday, June 27.
There will be tents in case of inclement weather. With limited seating, attendees are encouraged to bring their own lawn seating and picnic blankets.
