Ceremony Marks Start of New Life for Darlington Schoolhouse

 

Ribbon CuttingWe hope you were able to join us April 7 at our new headquarters for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.  If not, follow the link to access a great recap of the event as reported in The Record: Former Darlington Schoolhouse begins new life as HQ for New York-New Jersey Trail Conference

Personal acknowledgements and a project history occupied a significant portion of the celebration. The 124-year-old Darlington Schoolhouse and the 95-year-old Trail Conference have both served their communities well. By merging the two, we will be able to serve a larger community, even better than before. With the building complete, the work is now at hand.
