Putnam History Museum’s Lawn Party July 18

Whites and Wickets to be held at Garrison home

The Putnam History Museum Board invites the greater Hudson Highlands community to the annual lawn party on Saturday, July 18, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the home of Dorothy and Jim Klein, 39 Indian Brook Road in Garrison. This year’s theme will be “Whites and Wickets” and attire is festive “summer whites.”

The Lawn Party serves to honor key contributors to local history, raise funds and encourage membership to support the museum’s mission and programming. In addition to the “summer whites” attire, croquet is catching on as a Putnam History Museum annual lawn party tradition. Locally sourced light fare and drink are provided on the Kleins’ beautiful grounds that overlook the Hudson. This longtime event dates back to the mid-20th century.

Midsummer beverages and refreshments will be served. Tickets are $70 and may be purchased at the door or online at putnamhistorymuseum.org. Contributions are fully deductible as provided by law. For further contribution information, call 845-264-4020, ext. 10. For additional lawn party or Putnam History Museum information, call 845-265-4010, or email info@putnamhistorymuseum.org.
