Amenia rocks at Indian Rock Schoolhouse Picnic
AMENIA — The Amenia community had a pleasant fall day to enjoy the annual Indian Rock Schoolhouse Community Day on Saturday, Oct. 9. It was the 20th anniversary of the renovation of the historic one-room schoolhouse.
Held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the iconic red schoolhouse, the Community Day celebration offered plenty of activities to keep children and adults alike entertained during their visit.
The bucolic scene including a crafts table where local children could paint pumpkins, the perfect activity just before Halloween.
Local organizations and businesses set up booths displaying their wares and sharing information for area residents to browse while chatting with local vendors, crafters and town leaders and volunteers.
The Amenia Lions Club cooked up their famous barbecue for a tasty lunch, which was followed by a celebratory set of sheet cakes. Meanwhile, live music was played for all to enjoy while old and new friends caught up with each other under the pavilion.
