BetterArts is partnering with the Macomb Historical Association for Macomb Old Home Days from this Saturday, Aug. 9, the Macomb Historical Society Building in Hammond. 

This year's event  additionally marks the 50th anniversary of the Macomb Historical Association.
Bill Berry, president of the Macomb Historical Association, says the event is a chance for people to get together to share their stories and memories of the community (see his interview with 7 News This Morning here).

There will be museum and cemetery tours, a chicken barbecue, a cake walk, old-fashioned games for kids, and a band from 8 to 11 p.m.

BetterArts will have a table set up with arts and crafts, information about the upcoming Summerfest, a workshop schedule and sign-up sheet, and games for children. Reps will also have digital recorders to allow revelers to record memories they have of growing up and living in the North Country. These stories will be archived for us on the upcoming Better Radio.

Other events at the Old Home Days include a silent auction, chicken BBQ, dance Saturday night), cemetery tours, demonstrations of old time skills, children's games, a tour of the museum, and the sharing of memories.

Old Home Days will be held at the Macomb Historical Society building at 6766 State Highway 58 in Hammond, NY.
