Exeter…The Board of Governors of the American Independence Museum is hosting “The Midnight Ride”, an evening honoring Exeter’s rich Revolutionary past, on April 17th at Folsom Tavern. The lead “Paul Revere” sponsor is The Provident Bank and proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the museum’s educational programs.
The event will begin with a champagne toast at 6pm, hearty hors d’oeuvres, delightful desserts and an auction of special items and experiences. Tickets for the event will be $100 per person for members of the American Independence Museum or $125 per person for non-members. Everyone is encouraged to wear a Revolutionary-era costume to add to the festivities.
“It will be a very fun and festive evening, with people in costumes. Who knows who will show up? George Washington? Molly Stark? Maybe Paul Revere himself!” said Gail Nessell Colglazier, the museum’s executive director. “The “Midnight Ride” page at www.independencemuseum.org has details about the event plus suggestions for costumes and rental locations. Tickets may be purchased via PayPal through the web page or by calling 603-772-2622.”
The American Independence Museum, located at One Governors Lane in Exeter, NH, focuses on the contributions of the Gilman family, the town of Exeter, and the state of New Hampshire towards the founding of our nation. It will re-open for tours on May 19 and will host the 20th annual American Independence Festival on July 17.
