Plans are underway for the second annual Waverly’s Attic/SRAC fundraiser in downtown Waverly, NY on Saturday, August 9th, 2014. Last year’s event was a big success bringing hundreds of visitors to Waverly, with street vendors, clowns, great food, kids activities, Chinese auction, free museum tours, geode cutting, and a large auction all taking place on Broad Street. SRAC event organizer and executive director, Deb Twigg explained, “We are now requesting street vendor applications and donations for our huge street auction. People can donate household items, antiques, even automobiles to SRAC to sell at this auction, and we will even come and pickup whatever you have for your convenience. Anyone interested in donating items or having a vendor tent at the event can call me at (607)727-3111 or you can learn more at http://www.waverlysattic.com/ .”
A new addition to Waverly’s Attic this year will be Bike Tioga. Bike Tioga is not a race, but an organized ride of approximately 20, 40, or 60 miles with various elevations. This ride is designed to promote healthy living while displaying the county’s natural beauty and local businesses. Riders are encouraged to stop along the way to visit local business and tourist attractions. Picnic lunches and farm visits have been popular stops in the past and the event has always emphasized a relaxed, fun environment.
“We are excited about bringing this popular event to the Waverly area and showing Bike Tioga participants everything that Tioga County has to offer,” said Kim Depew, Bike Tioga committee member. “Bikers will be able to travel throughout the county and see local businesses and other attractions along the bike routes.”
Committee members have been working hard to make this year’s Bike Tioga event a memorable experience. Committee members include: Deb Twigg, SRAC Executive Director; Kim Depew, Marketing Manager at Tioga State Bank; Alan & Brie Burgess, owners of the Railhouse Restaurant; Jessica Schillmoeller, Director at Worker Ownership Resource; Dan Gellatt, Waverly Police Chief, and Becca Maffei, Tioga County Tourism Director. If you would like more information on Bike Tioga, please call the Tioga County Tourism Office at 607-687-7440.
Twigg added, “Make sure to mark Saturday August 9th on your calendars for a great event in downtown Waverly that will be jam packed with great things to do with your friends and family. It will be a wonderful time and will help support the Susquehanna River Archeological Center (SRAC).”
