Sherman Day plans underway for August 6

The plans for Sherman Day in the Village of Sherman NY are well underway. The annual event will take place on Saturday, August 6 this year and promises to be another day of family fun in the Village.

The Sherman Day Parade is always a highlight. This year, it kicks off from the corner of Park and Kendrick Streets. As in the past, the popular spots on Main Street will probably be crowded with spectators anxious to hear the music, see the floats, and honor the firemen.

The Grand Marshals for the Parade are the founding and current members of the Sherman Historical Society. They will be riding in a wagon provided by Ed and Barb Trisket of Panama. Triskets' Belgium horses will pull the wagon.

The Sherman Historical Society was started in 2011by community adults who wanted to ensure the Yorker Museum would be preserved. Sally Patterson, Hazel Halter, John Aldridge, Donna Karges, Mary Reyda, Carol Chase and Gary Yonker worked with local and state government officials to set up the Sherman Historical Society and the organization continues to grow with new members taking on more responsibilities. To honor the commitment of these people, they are the Parade Marshals.

Small town parades are the best. You catch up with old friends and make new ones while enjoying the festivities. Plan to be in Sherman on August 6 to enjoy the parade, check out the vendors, eat some chicken barbeque, and plan to stop in at the Yorker Museum to see what 70 years of preserving history looks like in a small town with a great sense of pride in their culture and traditions.
