- Silvermine Pot Luck Dinner Always A Sell-Out!
Don’t Miss the Potluck Dinner February 7, 2015!
Back by popular demand!
The best thing about a potluck is getting to taste everyone’s favorite recipes. The best thing about a Silvermine Potluck is getting to share all that scrumptious old-fashioned fun with neighbors and friends.
Eat, drink and be merry Saturday, February 7th at the Silvermine Arts Center. Everyone is requested to bring a something to share; it’s your chance to wow the crowd with an old family recipe or a dish you’ve been dying to try. Feast on a variety of favorite appetizers, entrees and desserts and catch up with friends.
Call for Volunteers
Would you like to volunteer at the Pot Luck dinner? Specifically, we are looking for volunteers to assist with decorations, help us set up prior to the event, help coordinate all food when it arrives at the event and set the food up on the serving tables, and a clean up crew. Please email email@example.com and let us know what you’d like to do. Thanks!!
- Silvermine’s 1947 Fire Engine
Back in the 1940’s, when Silvermine had it’s own zipcode, the Silvermine Volunteer Fire Company was founded by residents. Headquartered in a barn, the company was informally organized and covered parts of Norwalk, Wilton, and New Canaan. They were not officially recognized as part of the Connecticut State Fireman’s Association but were recognized in each of the three towns they served. The company became inactive in the 1960s and later disbanded.
The Silvermine Fire Engine, a 1947 Ford, is a proud reminder of the strength of the Silvermine volunteers. You’ll see it from time to time at Silvermine Community Membership drives and most certainly, every year, on Christmas Eve when Santa arrives at the Silvermine Tavern.
Meet the Chief
Enjoy the interview below with Bing Ventras, our Chief, and Bruce Cruikshank, the primary mechanic who lovingly restores and keeps the engine on the road.
