Preston Outlines Events for Path through History Weekend

(Binghamton, NY) Broome County Executive Debbie Preston teamed up with several others to outline the events in Broome and Tioga County for the Path through History weekend.

The event, which is part of a larger statewide event, will be June 20 and 21.

“This is a great way for people to learn about the rich history of our community,” says Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.  “For us to look to the future we need to understand our past and this is a great way to learn about the contributions our community has made.”

There are a total of 23 events in Broome County and 1 in Tioga County during that weekend. Events stretch from Maine to Windsor to Harpursville and west to Owego.

Events include photo displays, walking tours, a vintage car show, sacred spirituals and the ride the carousel circuit.  Most of the events are free for the public.

“I can’t think of a better way to showcase the storied history of Broome County,” says Judi Hess from the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce.  “People will learn about architecture, music, art, vintage vehicles and so much more.  This isn’t just an event for little children it’s a great family friendly event that has something for everyone.”

“We know a great deal about our history, but it’s always great to hear from the members of the community as well,” says Tioga County Legislative Chair Martha Sauerbrey.  “The Tioga County Historical Society will be taking interviews during our Strawberry Festival to use in future exhibits.”

The local events are part of a statewide event that has more than 250 events planned for that weekend.
