Odds and ends.....
A few reminders:
Meadow Croft House Tours: Historic tours of the Roosevelt Estate are happening every weekend from now through October. The times are 2:00-4:00 on Saturday and Sunday. See how life was in the early 1900's as you experience a guided tour with a trained docent. Always something new to see and learn!
Camp Tabat display: A wonderful display of memorabilia from the local Camp Tabot is currently on display at Meadow Croft. Camp Tabot was a children's camp located at the end of Boylan Lane in Blue Point and was in operation during the 40's, 50's and 60's. Come on down to MC and check it out!
Thanks JK Hodge: On July 12th, the BBPHA provided our first FREE summer concert featuring JK Hodge and friends. It was a beautiful night, great music and a good time was had by all. Thanks to Board member Dave Harenberg who organizes our summer concerts.
