Seeking club artifacts
Sandi Parisi, the Warrensburg Town Historian, is seeking to borrow artifacts relating to the local chapters of the Odd Fellows, Rebekahs and Theta Rho organizations that were active in town many decades ago.
Parisi is seeking the items for an exhibit planned at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History. Those who have such items are asked to call Sandi at 623-2207.
The Warrensburg Fifty-Plus Seniors Club is planning a bus trip to Ottawa, the capital of Ottawa, and the scenic Thousand Islands region — and area residents are now welcome to sign up.
The five-day, four-night tour is to occur from Sept. 17 through 21.
The tour fee includes three nights lodging in Ottawa, and a one night stay in Thousand Islands in the St. Lawrence River off Lake Ontario. The fee includes four breakfasts, three dinners including two in Ottawa and one in the Thousand Islands region.
Included in the trip are a guided tour of Ottawa, a tour of Parliament hill, a visit to the colorful Byward market — a tourist attraction in the city’s historic district. The trip also features a visit to the Canadian Museum of Civilization, a top attraction in our neighboring nation.
Also included is a sightseeing cruise around the Thousand Islands and a visit to Boldt Castle and a visit to Casino du Lac Leamy. The trip fee of $474 per person (double occupancy) includes a souvenir gift, luggage handling, taxes, meal gratuities, and bus transportation.
For further details and reservations, contact Jo Pereira at 623-3428.
Honoring town elders
To celebrate the town’s Bicentennial, the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce is hosting Warrensburg Day on Thursday July 4, and the group is now signing up seniors to participate in the event’s parade.
The Chamber is particularly seeking local citizens 90 and older, to ride in designated sedans, in honor of their longevity — and to recognize their connection with the past.
