Southwold Trip a Smashing Success!

THE SOUTHWOLD TRIP (September 17th - 27th 2005)

co-sponsored by the Southold Historical Society & The Old House Society

Thanks to all who participated in this wonderful trip to the mother town of Southwold!

Southwold Museum

This year's trip to Southwold, where Southold founder Rev. John Youngs emigrated from, included special receptions and tours that could not have been better! A formal reception at Town Hall by the Mayor and Town Council was followed by special tours of the Southwold Museum and St. Edmund's Church, which was established in the 15th century as a daughter church to St. Margaret's in nearby Reydon (for which our "Reydon Shores" is named). Tea was served to the Southold group at the home of Ruth Chapman of Reydon followed by a buffet dinner at the home of the Vicar of St. Edmund's Church, Jane Wilson. The group was also honored at the high mass at St. Edmund's Church and treated to a magnificent luncheon at St. Edmund's Hall following the service. Further events and receptions, including those held in conjunction with the annual "Blessing of the Nets" ceremony, were also held. Many thanks to all those in Southwold and Reydon who made our visit to their beautiful town such a memorable one. We all hope to return one day soon!
