Hello friends. I hope this newsletter finds you, and finds you well. It has been a rough two years, but
we are still here continuing to monitor and preserve history. We are greatly looking forward to a full
in person season of events here at the Brinckerhoff House Historic Site, starting with Maple Sugaring
(rescheduled for Saturday March 19th)
. We welcome two new trustees to our board, John McGrane, and Stephen
Caswell, both of the town of East Fishkill. Both in their own unique way have much to bring to the
East Fishkill Historical Society. On the other side of this newsletter you will find a membership
renewal
. If you haven’t renewed your membership yet, please do. Your support helps us continue
with our mission, and host our community events. If you have friends and neighbors who don’t know
about us, please share and encourage them to become members, so that they can learn about the rich
history of the town of East Fishkill. As always, we greatly appreciate your continued support.
History Matters! Thank you!

Rick Soedler
