Save Our Stepney … One Cobblestone at a Time

Stepney Heritage Trail Kiosk
Stepney Heritage Trail Kiosk

Help us preserve the heritage of our community by purchasing an engraved cobblestone in the walkway round the Stepney Heritage Trail Kiosk on the Stepney Green.

Each engraved cobblestone costs $75 and makes a great gift with your message permanently placed in the circular walkway.

More information on how you can get your cobblestone placed into the walkway, honoring a family member, a pet or favorite person, is available here.  There are only 20 cobblestones still available out of the original 160 cobblestones, So place YOUR order NOW.

For additional information call Lee at 203-261-5702.

Flags Over Stepney

Flag Sponsorships are availalbe now for the 2009 season. We place thirteen American flags on the Stepney Green in celebration of each of our five patriotic holidays plus the rememberance of 9/11. Each flag pole has a plaque attached advising who is the sponsor of that flag. Sponsorships are $75. for the year.

Memorial Day Parade

This year we participated in the annual Monroe Memorial Day Parade.  We decorated a 1966 Pontiac Lemans convertible and threw candy to the excited children along the parade route.  Cathy Loehr, Evelyn Pravecek, Joel Leneker and Lee Hossler rode in the convertible on a hot beautiful day for a parade.  It was agreed that we should enter the parade again next year.

Open House On The Route 25 Improvement Project

Keep an eye open for more information on a date for this Open House On the Route 25 Improvement Project.  We will have guest speakers to explain the future of Route 25 plus other topics concerning the village of Stepney. Keep checking this site to get more information as it becomes available.

Annual Tree Lighting

Mark your calendars for Saturday December 5, 2009 to attend the SOS Annual Tree Lighting on the Stepney Green.  This is a memorable evening of merriment in song, food, and drink plus a special appearance of Frosty The Snowman.  You won't want to miss this fun filled event

So as you can see things are happening thanks to the many volunteers.
