Whether you’ve been to the Village Wide Garage Sale or at some other event on Saturday, stop by the Flint House for a fun and relaxing end to your day.
Grab a blanket or chairs. Bring a picnic from home, or stop by one of our village restaurants and pick something up. We’ll have three beverage choices.
Wolf Hollow Brewing Company is bringing 3 varieties for tasting and purchase–Wolf Hollow Amber, an American Amber Ale; District 6 IPA, a West Coast Style IPA; and Brunette’s Revenge, a Dry Hopped Wheat Beer. Don’t forget to bring your ID! Wolf Hollow will be serving from 4 until 6:30 (or later).
Electric City Roasters will have a selection of their locally-roasted coffees. You may be familiar with their great products from the Schenectady Greenmarket. You’ll be able to taste a variety of coffees and purchase coffee by the cup. They will also be selling coffee beans to take home. They will be here from 4-6:30.
Soda and bottled water will be available for a small donation.
For dessert, free Stewarts ice cream sundaes will be available! Service starts at 6 and continues until we run out.
From 4-6 there will be tours of the Flint House. If you’ve never been inside, here is your chance to see what is in here and find out the interesting story of the building.
Barbara Bennett will have a craft table for the kids with a Flag Day/July 4 craft.
Dr. Steve Jones will be talking about the archaeology that has been done at the Flint House and has on display some of the interesting items found underground around the house.
Deborah Angilletta will be painting outdoors. She recently had an exhibit at the Mabee Farm of plein air work she did over there last year. She’ll bring some items to display, and would be happy to talk to you about the pleasures of painting outside the studio.
The Scotia Fire Department will bring over the antique hand pumper, also from 4-6. When the Neptune Engine Company (precursor of today’s SFD) was formed in 1873, they purchased two used hand-drawn engines. This one is “Old Neptune #4,” an 1830 pumper built by W.E. Worth & Son of Albany and contains a 200-gallon water tank. Come check it out!
Scotia is one of the few really walkable villages around, so I encourage you to take a walk!
The small street in front of the Flint House will be closed during the event. Some parking will be available, and we are saving some of those places (near the dog park parking area) for people with handicapped placards. There will be a drop-off zone at the end of Reynolds Street as well, so a driver can pull around, let folks out, and then go back out for regular street parking.
There are also porta-potties for your convenience.
