This "overview" page provides information about the Darrtown Fall Festival background
and the mission statement.
Origin of the
Darrtown Reunion Committee
The 2014 Bicentennial celebration
ignited thoughts of an annual event.
Following the Bicentennial, many comments, similar to those displayed below, appeared on Facebook or in email messages to Steering Committee members.
Reunion Committee formed
In response to the aforementioned requests and/or persuasions, members of the former Darrtown Bicentennial Steering Committee reconstituted themselves as the Darrtown Reunion Committee.
The Reunion Committee
adopted the following
"It is the mission of the Darrtown Reunion Committee to collect and preserve the history and artifacts of Darrtown, while fostering a “spirit of community” among all persons who have a connection to Darrtown.”
To achieve the Reunion Mission Statement,
the Reunion Committee decided to
organize a Fall Festival.
