A Festive Event

The Sag Harbor Historical Society’s open house last Sunday afternoon was a truly festive event for all. The Annie Cooper Boyd House heralded the event with a wonderful banner created by Peter Solow and his students and was decorated with wreaths and garland thanks to the generosity of Phil Bucking’s Sag Harbor Nursery.

Between 2 and 4 p.m., children and adults listened to the magical stories of Sag Harbor author Billy Baldwin, including “The Cookie That Saved Christmas,” decorated Christmas ornaments, and enjoyed cider and cookies while singing Christmas carols to music played by Nancy Remkus and Peter Cummings. Billy brought homemade sugar cookies, and the Sag Harbor Bakery donated a huge plate of holiday cookies. Billy also sold copies of his book and graciously donated a portion of the proceeds to the Society.

The Trustees of SHHS want to thank everyone for their generosity and wish one and all a very happy holiday season.
