Milford had it’s first snow really early this year but its long gone and so far there is none on the immediate horizon. The bad news is that your typical winter sports that bring people to Harrington House, like cross-country skiing and snow shoeing–very popular in our neck of the woods–are still waiting for the right conditions. Normally the Recreation Committee in the Borough lays down an ice skating rink in Ann Street Park for the Winter Lights Festival at the end of January, but it is looking iffy.
The good news is that hiking conditions are alive and well. There are plenty of other events in Milford to take advantage of. Like old movies? Our own John DiLeo, film historian extraordinaire, is hosting two film series this month The first is free at the Triversity Center right across the street from Harrington House. The second is on Thursdays with dinner($$) at the Delmonico Room at the Hotel Fauchere. Now that is a great winter time activity.
Pike County Historical Society events
The Columns Museum is hosting a late afternoon art opening on January 26th. Using titles of Zane Grey books as inspiration to a newly formed group of artists will exhibit. “50 Shades of Zane Grey” will combine new art with history …”artistory”, if you will. On February 9th they are hosting their annual Explorer’s Dinner featuring Doc Bayne. He will be speaking about the great chain that was forged and put up across the Hudson River to stop the British invasion of the Colonies. Check out their website for more information on this dinner and lecture. And on Sunday March 24th at 5 pm the Foundation Room will be the site of the Sunday Soiree featuring Ronny Whyte. Always a sold out show.
So while we wait for the snow, you don’t need to wait to come to Milford! It is sure to come.
