East Fishkill Historical Society
Where did the Autumn of 2023 go? Fall seemed to go by in an amazing flash. With the holiday season approaching, we look forward to welcoming visitors back to the Brinckerhoff House to help us kick off our December events. As a thank you to the community every December we present our annual Christmas Open House. This event, which is probably my favorite, has been a tradition at the Brinckerhoff House for many years. If you enjoy community, traditional Christmas music, and hot mulled cider, please consider visiting with us on Sunday, December 3rd from 1-4pm.
As always, we greatly appreciate your continued support for all that we do. Please consider becoming actively involved. With the loss of several key people we welcome any and all help big or small our members are willing to give. We need help with running and presenting events, school field trips, gardening, collections management, operating our general store and other site work. Please share this with any high school students that you know who are looking to fulfill their community service hours prior to graduation. Please contact Rick Soedler. Thank you.
