Sherburne residents celebrate Heritage Day this weekend

SHERBURNE – The 61st Regiment Civil War Reenactors, displaying a wide array of the era’s artifacts, will once again camp out in Sherburne’s Historic Park on School Street, as local residents prepare to celebrate Heritage Day on Saturday.

According to Sherburne Town Historian Rose Wellman, the annual event has expanded this year to include a special presentation by the group at 7 p.m., Thursday, at the Chenango County Historical Society Museum, 45 Rexford St. in Norwich, followed by an Ice Cream Social.

In addition, Wellman said the reenactors will offer a “special salute” to Captain Isaac ‘Ikey’ Plumb, Jr., a Sherburne native who was killed by a confederate sharpshooter while serving the Union during the Civil War, which will take place at 5 p.m. on Friday at the Civil War Monument adjacent to the United Church of Christ in downtown Sherburne.

Local Cub Scout Troop 66, celebrating 100 years of scouting, will officially kick off Heritage Day in Historic Park and perform the flag raising ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, in front of the historic schoolhouse, according to Wellman, who added the scouts’ anniversary brought a “special significance” to Heritage Day this year.
