The public is invited to Old Mill Village for a glimpse at a centuries-old way of life during Viking Day on Saturday, Sept. 14. This special fundraising event will be held from noon to 5 pm on the village grounds, located at 5774 State Route 848, New Milford. 

All things Viking will take over the village with plenty of displays and demonstrations of the culture, arts, and skills of the first Europeans to visit North America.

To compliment the activities, there will be authentic Viking food for the tasting, along with demonstrations of Viking weapons, Norse weaving and knitting, a workshop of Rune reading, and a trading post.

Admission is $5 for those 12 years and over; $2 for 5-11 years; and free for those under 5. The village buildings will also be open for touring during the event, as will the Village Mercantile and Village Canteen.

Old Mill Village Museum was founded over 50 years ago to preserve the area’s rich heritage. It has become a center of education and history, showcasing the crafts and artifacts of the late 18th through the early 20th centuries.

For more information, call 570-434-3353.

The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
