Last minute plans are underway at the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) in Waverly, NY in order to get ready for the 8th annual free community event, DrumBeats Through Time to be held Saturday, October 15th from 1-5pm.
Along with the nationally awarded Buffalo Creek Dancers performance from 3-4pm, there will be free admission to the SRAC Exhibit Hall, vendors selling crafts and artwork, many private local artifact collections rarely seen by the public, and special archaeological exhibit titled “Time and Tradition” which is a professionally designed educational exhibit, created in collaboration with archaeologists from Binghamton University’s Anthropology Department, and professional designers from the Roberson Museum in Binghamton. The Seneca Historian Alvin Parker will also be sharing the history of the Seneca people in a presentation at 1:30pm. SRAC’s Deb Twigg said, “This year’s event will be bigger and better with many new things we have never had before. Best of all, it is free for everyone to attend and enjoy with family and friends. We are just really proud to bring so many unique and exceptional events to our community.”
The SRAC annual membership luncheon meeting precedes the public event from 11:30am – 1pm, with the doors opening to the public from 1-5pm. To learn more, visit www.SRACenter.org/events or call the Center at (607)565-7960.
