HVVA Events 2011
Saturday, December 10, 2011 – 10:00 AM
We’ll gather in the parking lot behind the Kingston School District administrative offices on Green St. (Green St. is the first right off North Front Street if you are coming via Washington Avenue). This event is by far the most fun tour of the year. We visit houses, have a great lunch in the historic Hoffman House Tavern and enjoy a day of fellowship and good cheer. Cost of the lunch is $20, payable on the day of the tour. RSVP is a MUST to attend this outing! Contact Rob Sweeney at 845-336-0232 or send e-mail to email@example.com

Saturday, October 15, 2011 – 10:00 AM. Exploration – Eastfield
A leisurely day of looking will be the rule of the day. Eastfield Village is the creation and life work of Don Carpentier, who has been collecting and reconstructing the stuff of everyday life between 1787 and 1840 since 1958. The village is called Eastfield because Don's father give him eight acres of woodlot near the east field of the family farm in 1971 for the first of his reconstructions: a blacksmith's shop (somebody's pigpen before Don dismantled and hauled it here). There are now more that 20 buildings, including the whale of a tavern where our HVVA meeting will take place.

Northern Saugerties HVVA study tour will begin - 10:00 AM at 51 Hanzl Road (dirt road), Saugerties, NY 12477
This house is difficult to find as there is no Road Sign! I will try and get there early and place a Dutch Flag to mark the turn.
Hanzl Road is on a Left off 9W north of the village of Saugerties. It is the second drive after you pass an abandon store front, the turn is also marked by a Column with a small light fixture on top. Good Luck! Here is Rob's cell # if you get lost 845 242 6927.
Saturday, July 10, 2010 – 10:00 AM
As tradition now has it the HVVA’s picnic will be folded into the same day we gather to showcase the work of our organization at Hurley’s Annual Stone House Day. The potluck picnic will begin at about 4:30 in back of the Elmendorf House on Main Street. Please let us know if you are willing to volunteer at the display table during the day.
