Annual Under The Tent Party on August 24th!

Lewis Park, the heart of the village, the core of the historic district and one of the properties of the Warwick Historical Society will be the setting for the Society’s annual “Under the Tent” party on August 24th from 6:00-9:00PM.  Come to support the Historical Society of the Town of Warwick which cares for and preserves Lewis Park and ten other properties in the village.    

 The Under the Tent event is set in the center of its historic buildings: The Old School Baptist Meeting House, Baird’s Tavern, the Buckbee Center, the Shingle House, the Sly Barn, the UAME Church building, the Lehigh & Hudson Caboose, the Ketchum House and the 1810 House. Surrounded by historical buildings and shaded by the historical trees of Lewis Park, “Under the Tent” will serve up epicurean delights donated by our own Town of Warwick Restaurants, accompanied with wine and beer and, of course, music to set the mood.  A 50/50 raffle and silent auction will add a bit of spice to an evening of lively conversation.  This is an occasion to reconnect with old friends and an opportunity to make new ones.

Every year the Warwick Historical Society is finding new ways to reach out to the community to make the connection between the past, the present and the future relevant.  This past year the Society opened its buildings to hundreds of school children, offered lectures and programs to adults and children alike and answered questions about the town of Warwick through its protected archives.  Additionally, the Society has sponsored supplemental educational experiences through the schools, wine and cheese events, historically based activities and a myriad of volunteer opportunities.

Consider your connection to the past.  Consider your connection to the future.  Consider attending this, the Warwick Historical Society’s major fundraiser, destined make a difference in the present.  This is an opportunity to support the Historical Society in its quest to not only preserve, but make history relevant and interesting to all the community and have a really good time in the process. 

To make a reservation please call 845/986-3236 or send an e-mail directly to: whs@warwick.net. Tickets are $60.00 per person and may be purchased at the door.
