NORWICH – Despite the recent cold snap that brought temperatures in the area well below normal, spring is right around the corner. And the Chenango County Historical Society is helping ring in the season with a salute to the northeast's longstanding maple industry.
Volunteers and vendors will be coming together this weekend to kick-off the third annual Maple Sunday event at the Chenango County Historical Society. The gala of all things maple gets underway from noon to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the Chenango County Historical Society, 45 Rexford St., Norwich.
“Central New York has always been known for its role as a big maple producer,” said Historical Society Director Meghan Molloy. “It's something pretty much every family in the area did during the winter, and this event recognizes that.”
