We were so honored to have as our very special guest, Sonia Sotomayor, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court who read the from the Declaration of Independence.
7th Annual Heritage Day Sunday July 3, Noon - 3pm
Friends and neighbors all come together for a home-grown celebration of local history and culture. The community parades down Village Lane in Orient after gathering on Oysterponds Lane at 11:30 - decorated bicycles, vintage vehicles and well-appointed pets on leashes are in abundance! We march to the Old Point Schoolhouse to read the Declaration of Independence, then head over to Poquatuck Park for a picnic, games and local music. We can't think of a day that brings more smiles and warm hearts.
