Old Mill Village Museum, New Milford, is hosting a celebration to commemorate the bicentennial of the founding of New Milford Township. The “Frontier Day” event will take place Saturday, June 23, and will run from 10:00 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the museum.
New Milford Township was founded in 1807, in what was then part of Luzerne County, and encompassed the settlements in and around the valley of Salt Lick Creek. To celebrate the frontier spirit that settled the area and helped it grow, Old Mill Village Museum is planning demonstrations and activities of 18th and 19th century style. Log cabin construction, wood and leather work, blacksmithing, quilting and spinning are just some of the crafts and trades that will be on display. Folks of all ages will also enjoy the old-time games, from sack races to horseshoes, and hands-on activities including butter churning and other “chores.”
In addition, the public will be invited to join the militia muster, to get a feel of what it was like to march in drill with musket or rifle for community defense.
Food will be available throughout the day, and picnic facilities are on the grounds for families who want to pack a basket to bring along.
Admission will be charged from 10 a.m. through 7 p.m., then the grounds will be open free of charge until the fireworks display at dusk.
The next meeting of the Thompson Borough Crime Watch will concentrate on the upcoming town fair event. Help is needed for this fundraising activity. All members are asked to attend and bring a friend who would like to help with the food or bake sale. The meeting will be Tuesday, June 12, 7:30 p.m. at the Baptist Church.
Parents and guardians are reminded of the borough ordinance (#82) which prohibits persons under the age of 17 from being on the streets, public places or back roads in the boro between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. There are fines involved if there is a violation.
Three boys were observed trespassing and destroying property during the past week. Their parents were called and they will be doing community service for several hours. If there is another violation the police will have to be called.
