2016 Membership Drive
As a member of the Friends of Schoharie Crossing, you will be a part of supporting the mission of the site in the preservation and interpretation of the Erie Canal as one of the 19th century's greatest commercial and engineering projects as well as sharing the story of the Mohawk community and Fort Hunter in the 18th century. In addition to that, the Friends group provides other educational opportunities for students and visitors by conducting special programs at the site. If that was not enough, the Friends group is active in providing opportunities for recreating visitors as well, and sharing the pride in this great historic park.
A sure-fire way to help Schoharie Crossing continue to offer great intriguing, entertaining and educational programs and events is to become an active member with the Friends of Schoharie Crossing. Your monetary membership fee will go to support such programs as the Not Just for KidsStorytelling series, Canal Days, Putman Porch Music, NYS History Month lecture series, professional development for staff & volunteers and to the development of further wonderful programs, educational opportunities and recreational events for the exciting future of the site.
We are also seeking more than just a membership due; your resources of time and word of mouth about Schoharie Crossing are invaluable! Share the passion you have for the site with your friends and family. Help get the word out about the programs, events and fun that can be had on site! Bring your relatives or friends along to meetings, events, or just to the site for a picnic. As a valued member of the Friends, volunteer for events, and/or help maintain the canal or towpath trails, help with office tasks or promotions, and contribute to the blog and newsletter too! There really are countless ways to give a little bit of you to further the preservation of history and of Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site.
Thank you for your time and continued support. Here is to a bright 2016!
