Hello All,
I would like to announce that the 2019 Sussex History Day, in conjunction with the Old Newton Burial Grounds Tour will be held on Saturday, September 21st, with a rain date of Sunday, September 22. The location is the grass field in front of the Old Newton Burial Grounds. This year I am making participating as easy as can be. I want your Historical Society’s and other organizations to shine and be promoted so, upon request, you will be provided an 8-foot table and 2 folding chairs. Half the battle is lugging the table and chairs to an event and I have taken that hurdle away. Here is your opportunity to set up a display, talk about your organization, hand out literature, sell some books, collect donations or whatever it is you want to do to promote your organization. Also, this year, we will have a Porta John ON SITE. No need to walk across the street to the museum to use the restroom unless you want to. But wait, there is more. We will have a Civil War encampment set up right in the middle of it all. The 27th Regiment of the New Jersey Volunteer Infantry will be set up and giving the whole place the feel of being back in the 1860’s. If that weren’t enough, the Long Hill Street Band will be on hand playing tunes of the era. This is going to be an outstanding day. I may even be adding more surprises as we approach it. What a great day for the people of Sussex County who love history. You are not going to want to miss this. Let’s all get out there and mix it up and have a great day of Sussex County History. It isn't Sussex County History Day without you!

I have attached the vendor application to this post. Don’t wait. Print and complete it and mail or e-mail it in immediately, especially if you require a table and/or chairs as they are very limited.

I hope to hear from you all very soon.
