The Village of Brewster held a well-attended Founder's Day on Sunday, September 15, under beautiful sunny skies. Attendees to the street fair were met with the sounds of music, the aroma of grilled foods, and the quick steps of competition dancers.
Local businesses and community organizations participating in the event offered information, food, and children’s activities to meet the interests of everyone.
Organizations offering information at the event included the Brewster Rotary Club, Brewster Library, Putnam County Archives, and Concerned Residents of Southeast.
Local businesses of note were Happy Valley Snacks, run by Joe and Suzanne Perucci, which offered free samples of their healthy frozen snacks, and Tails of Putnam, a pet sitting and walking company operated by Meri Verille.
Brewster Founder’s Day is organized by the Coalition for a Better Brewster and recognizes the birth of village founder Walter Brewster.
