This weekend I will have a booth on the lawn of our very own Dodge-Pratt Northram Art and Community Center in conjunction with the 62nd Annual NYState Woodmen's Field Days.
The Woodsmen's Field Days, a nonprofit organization, was founded by the Rev. Frank Reed in 1948. Due to the support of its many volunteers, (nearly 400) the Field Days have evolved into one of the predominant lumberjack contests in the United States today. Contestants come from as far away as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to compete in the lumberjack festivities, which are held the third weekend in August. In addition to the Woodsmen's contest on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there are displays of various forestry related equipment, covering a wide variety of interests from the professional logger to the occasional firewood cutter.
Our small town will be hopping this weekend with parades, fireworks, and events through out the town as well as the fair grounds.
Hoping you will stop by and say hello if your in the area!
