The Bowne House Historical Society is celebrating its 350th anniversary tonight on the roof of The Arsenal in Central Park tonight. New York City Commissioner of Parks and Recreation Adrian Benepe is the honorary chairman of the event. The Bowne House Historical Society will present the first ever Bowne House Historic Preservation Award to Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel on the occasion of this extraordinary anniversary. The fundraiser begins at 6pm and goes until 8pm tonight. For tickets, contact Anne at 718-359-0528.
If fundraisers are not your ideal setting, the Bowne House will be having an outdoor cleaning, raking, and planting event for the Downtown Historic Flushing Beautification Project. This event runs from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, October 15. Once again, contact Anne at 718-359-0528 if you are interested.
