Cider Tasting Event Roundup

What an amazing event yesterday! It was a great turnout of folks, all excited to taste the ciders, listen to good music, taste the various food items, and explore the Mill. We heard some great stories from peoples’ memories of the Mill.

A huge thank you to all of our volunteers, without which this would not have been possible! Of course a big thank you to the various local cider donors and the Hudson Valley Laboratory for the use of their apples in our Kimlin Cider. And another great thanks to The Roundabout Ramblers for their wonderful music and entertainment throughout the event! Also thank you to The Chocolate Mousse Catering for the tasty appetizers. And last but not at all least, thank you to the sponsors of this great event!

Thank you to all!!!

We had a lot of groups of Vassar College Alumni and other members of the public show up during our Open House on June 13th which was held during Vassar College’s Reunion Weekend.  Photographs from the event have been posted to our Facebook page; you can check them out by clicking here.  A great day and a great event!
