Our World War II was on display in the Town Hall throughout the day. The display of uniforms, both male and female, was in the Town Hall along with a gallery of pictures of "the home town boys." This was the second year of our display. Thanks to our historian, Sue Adsit, the kids had a putt putt course in the upstairs of the town hall.
Our day ended with a concert by the 10th Mountain Division group who played for us in the town municipal building. Their music was great!
On August 5, 2017, the Manzer twins out did themselves once again with their annual "Twins Wide Open" at the Cedars Golf Couse on the East Road in Lowville. The theme for this tournament was "Christmas in July." This Captain and Crew event was a shot gun start at 9 a.m. on this beautiful 18 hole course. Lunch was served and prizes were awarded. Door prizes were numerous! It was another fun filled golfing day. The Martinsburg Historical Society is forever grateful to these ladies for being so generous in time, effort and fun as well as the funds given to the historical society.
The 2018 event is already in the works. The Manzers never lack for ideas and enthusiasm! Stay tuned for :

Martinsburg Day 2017
Martinsburg Day, August 12, 2016 started at 10:00 am with people all over the hamlet for the open houses and displays as well as the village wide garage sales. The Martin Mansion had demonstrations and cannons replicating the War of 1812. The weather was threatening but people turned out. It was our best Martinsburg Day ever!
