On Saturday, April 16, the Whallonsburg Grange Hall will host a dinner and concert, with all proceeds going towards the reconstruction of the barn at Reber Rock Farm. The farm, located in the Reber Valley just outside of Essex, lost its new barn in a fire on February 27. Along with the building, Reber Rock lost calves, laying hens, tools, equipment, hay, and grain.
The benefit will begin with a farm-fresh dinner, serving from 5-6:30 pm, $10 for adults and $5 for those under 12. A full evening of music celebrating the 75th birthday of Bob Dylan follows at 7 pm, with The Wannabes, Alice’s Fault, and Ploughman’s Lunch. Donations will be accepted for the concert, pay what you will.
The Grange is located at 1610 NYS Route 22 in Whallonsburg, 5 miles south of the Essex ferry dock. For more information, click here.
