In the 1863 red brick one-room schoolhouse museum, local folk artist and vintage sign painter Peter Koenig will set up a display of his work. Across the street at the Grange Building, a host of area organizations will feature programs and displays. Museum members will honor the 150th Anniversary of the Grange Movement, which was organized in 1867 to give voice to farmers. The Mt. Hope Historical Society will bring a display of their extensive farm tool collection. The Port Jervis Council for the Arts will present speaker Lori Strelecki, Museum Director for the Pike County Historical Society at the Columns in Milford, PA. Ms. Strelecki’s noon time talk and slide presentation will be entitled “Pulp and Circumstance: the Story of John Newton Howitt.” At 2pm we are excited to present R.J. Storms and his Old School Blue Grass Band, who promises to fill the rafters with down-home music.
