August 3, 2019, the Manzer twins outdid themselves once again (as always) with their annual "Twins Wide Open" at the Cedars Golf Course on the East Road in Lowville. The theme for this tournament was "Go Hawaiian." This Captain and Crew event was a shotgun 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 support the historical society.
The 2020 event is already in the works. The Manzers never lack for ideas and enthusiasm! Stay tuned for :

Martinsburg Day, August 10, 2019, started at 9:00 a.m. with an unveiling of the plaque commemorating the site of the Walter Martin Mansion. The mansion is owned by the Lewis County Historical Society. Extensive renovations to the mansion are being done. The building is on the New York State and the National Historic Register. During the day, people were visiting the historic buildings in the hamlet, as well as shopping at the village-wide garage sales. The Martin Mansion was open for touring and there were demonstrations on the front and back lawn of the mansion. Mid-day, there was an antique tractor and car parade. Otis Ingersoll was the grand marshall of the parade. A concert was held in the evening at the town Municipal Building to close the day. The music was great. It was our best Martinsburg Day ever!
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!
