Stamford Youth Hockey Meets the NY Rangers!

There is an incredibly cool event coming to the Terry Connors Rink on September 8th. You’re now thinking, “but it’s only July why post now?” We are posting this now because this is a super cool event that must be registered for early and is on a first come-fist served basis.  Oh and did I mention it’s FREE?!?!

Growing up a N.Y. Rangers fan myself, I’m already super jealous of the kids who are going to get to participate in this!

Just to make sure I don’t get any details wrong, I’m going to just copy and paste some of the info here for you. The link will take you to all the information as well as the registration pages. Here you go:

The New York Rangers are once again teaming up with USA Hockey to encourage kids to Try Hockey for Free as they host lessons throughout the Tri-State area including, Stamford Youth Hockey – Please note this event will take place at Terry Conners Ice Rink in Stamford.

Experience Colonial Stamford at the Hoyt-Barnum House!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Tom Zoubek, 203-246-6941

EXPERIENCE COLONIAL STAMFORD AT THE HOYT-BARNUM HOUSE

The Stamford History Center invites everyone to come and visit Stamford’s oldest dwelling, the Hoyt-Barnum House. Recently restored in its new location, the siding on the house now brings us back in time to how it originally looked when it was built in 1699.

While many may be familiar with the red paint that graced the house after a 1960s restoration, the History Center did tremendous research and work in making sure the house would look very much as it did when it was originally constructed. Of course, any home that survives for more than 300 years will experience cosmetic and structural changes influenced by fashion and maintenance needs.

When you take a tour of the house, you will get to view rarely seen artifacts plus 18th and 19th century pieces of furniture from the Center’s vast collection. You’ll see your old favorites as well as items that can now be touched and handled. An advantage of taking the self-guided audio tour is that you can control just how much or how little detail you’d like to learn about the property. And don’t miss out on the introductory video which was produced by Stamford’s own David Klein of DEK Creative (with help from CT Humanities Council funding). Such a proud collective of Stamford folks helping to preserve Stamford’s history!

Tour days and times for the Hoyt-Barnum House, now located at the Stamford History Center at 1508 High Ridge Road, are Thursdays and Fridays at 12:30pm, 1:30pm & 2:30pm and Saturdays at 11am, 12pm, 1:30pm & 2:30pm. Be sure to visit: http://stamfordhistory.org for more details.

SHC is also happy to announce the return of “Tales of Horror and Death” just in time for Halloween! Taking place on October 26th and 27th, there will be 3 tours each evening at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. Come and hear interpreters tell the tales of what horrors our City’s founders faced in the 17th & 18th centuries in their day to day lives. You will also hear about the story of Stamford “witch” Elizabeth Clawson, who was the subject of Stamford’s own Witch Trials in 1692!

Space is limited so get your tickets early and please note, this graphic program is intended for ages 12 and up. Tickets are $15 a person and $10 for members. Please see the SHC website’s event calendar to reserve your place for this awesome spooky event.
