Our 2017 Annual Picnic
Celebrates
TINSMAN BROTHERS LUMBERYARD
Sunday, August 27
4pm to 7pm

Did you know that Tinsman Bros. Inc. is the oldest lumberyard still in operation in the USA?

Founded in 1785, the historic Lumberville landmark has doggedly weathered floods, hurricanes, countless wars,economic crises and political upheavals. Today Tinsman’s is known for its quality building materials and exceptional service.

Bill and Tom Tinsman are the fifth generation to carry on the family business. Each are proud to have sons, Will and TJ, respectively, who are the sixth generation to take leadership roles in the company.

The Tinsmans are pleased to have us visit. The picnic will be held behind the lower lumberyard, beyond the original mill, in a spot which everyone in Lumberville simply calls “The Meadow”. The Paunacussing Creek runs along beside it, the Delaware River is a short stroll away. There is ample room for horseshoes, croquet and to show off your antique cars.

The Historical Society will provide the port-o-potty and as usual, the burgers, hot dogs and beverages!! Please bring a covered dish to share.

A $12.00 per person donation is requested to help cover costs.
Date: August 27 beginning at 4:00 (Rain date to be announced)
Place: The Meadow at TBI-3855 River Road-(Drive to the back behind the mill.)
