Celebrate NY State’s 240th Birthday In Harlem (Update)

New York History blog reports that on April 22nd, 2017 at noon, New York State will be 240 years old. It was on that date back in 1777 that New York’s Constitution was signed in Kingston, New York.

What better way to celebrate that important document that gave life to our State than to organize and conduct brief, unified, community-wide bell ringing event in as many of the cities, towns and villages in the State of New York as possible at their houses of worship and other institutions.

In this regard, the Village of Ossining will be the site of a community-wide bell ringing celebration in which some of the bells located in Village houses of worship, firehouses, and other institutions will be rung in unison at noon. A proclamation is expected to be read declaring New York Constitution Day.

If you plan on holding a similar event in Harlem you are encouraged to contact Miguel Hernandez at miguel.hdz@verizon.net.
