Memorial Day Community Picnic – Monday, May 28, 2018

Hosted by Knowlton Township Historic Commission (KTHC), the annual Memorial Day Community Picnic will take place on Monday, May 28th, 2018. All are welcome to attend from the community and surrounding region. The event begins at 12:00 noon, rain or shine.

An Inaugural Flag Raising Ceremony will take place at our newly installed flag pole. The flag pole installation is an Eagle Scout project for Kameron Steckel, member of Belvidere Boy Scout Troop #141. The flagpole was generously donated by the First Hope Bank. Boy Scout Troop #141 will perform the Flag Raising Ceremony. The Belvidere High School Band will perform patriot music in celebration of the flag raising.

The community is welcome to enjoy a self-guided hike through Ramsaysburg Homestead’s newly established interpretive trail through a mature forest adjacent to the Homestead. Interpretive signaae highlights the geology and hydrology indigenous to the Delaware River Valley. This trail was dedicated in October 2017 through the accomplishment of Boy Scout Alex Hicks of Belvidere Troop #141 in achieving his Eagle Scout merit.

All are invited to arrive by canoe or kayak. Take a self-guided kayak and canoe journey by floating down the Delaware River from the Columbia, NJ boat launch to the landing at the Ramsaysburg site. The distance between the two points is approximately 3 miles down-river. River travelers should look for the large brown sign stating “Ramsaysburg – Landing” at marker 204.0 along the left bank (NJ side).
