I hope that your summer is progressing nicely. The next meeting of the Sussex County History Alliance meeting will be 7PM Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Council office. It is located at 133 Spring Street in Newton. There is a parking lot in the back if there is no street parking available. Our presenter will be Wayne McCabe, Sussex County Historian and President of the Sussex County Historical Society. His topic will be understanding how our municipalities, particularly the larger rural townships, developed during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. I hope to see you all there. Live streaming will not be available for this meeting.

The 2017 Sussex County Farm & Horse Show will be at the fairgrounds from August 4th thru August 13th. Some of our members will be putting on presentations. To see the schedule of events plus our member presentations, go to:

Had a great time today at the Crescent Theatre on its official 100th anniversary. Mayor Little was on hand and Sarah Frey, Constituent Advocate for Congressman Gottheimer stopped by to drop off a Certificate of Recognition. Freeholder George Graham stopped by too. I was able to raise $130 for the Sussex-Wantage Historical Society selling commemorative envelopes. I have more for sale if anyone is interested. Let me know. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and took a tour and bought envelopes. Mario
