Valley Excursion Field Trip – Saturday July 8th

Hi folks,

We will meet at 2 p m at the Old Meeting House Antiques establishment at 1063 Church Street near Port Williams.

If you are coming from Halifax on Highway 101, take Exit 11 and Route 358 to Port Williams. Go through Port Williams and continue on Route 358 until you reach Church Street. Turn left on Church Street and after three hundred meters you will reach the Old Meeting House on the right. Please do not park in the first main driveway but continue on to the second driveway with parking in the field.

In addition to the main building with antiques, the property is large and well maintained. There are two rustic buildings, an old hay rake, an old cart, an old water pump, cultivated flowers, a pond with ducks (albeit very skittish) and dragonflies, etc. The website is here.

At 4 p m we have a tour and tasting (about an half hour in duration) at the Barreling Tide Distillery at 1164 Parkway Drive in Port Williams. Cost is $5. per person. The tour will enable us to see and photograph their distilling equipment which is featured in the gallery on their website.

Please bring a field trip waiver form with you. The form is at this link.

Waterproof footwear, sunscreen and bug repellant may be in order for the Old Meeting House property.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Rain date is Sunday July 9th.

Please let me know if you plan to attend.

I hope you can join us on the 8th!

Dean
