About Revolutionary Westchester 250

In July 2016 the Congress of the United States passed (and President Obama signed) Public Law 114-196, the “United States Semiquincentennial Commission Act of 2016.”

The law’s purpose was to establish a Commission to provide for the observance and commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States and related events through local, State, national, and international activities planned, encouraged, developed, and coordinated by a national commission representative of appropriate public and private authorities and organization.

Revolutionary Westchester 250 (RW250) is a charitable not-for-profit corporation organized to further the purpose of the Semiquincentennial Commission by providing for the observance and commemoration of the pivotal role of Westchester County in the American Revolution, the founding of the United States and related events.

Since the summer of 2018, RW250 has organized a series of popular and well-attended programs and appeared at numerous events and meetings. We are thrilled with the enthusiasm expressed by both families and history buffs who have joined us. We are fully committed to a grass roots local effort and an engagement with the many diverse voices in Westchester County.

Tribes Hill Gatherings Return

Monthly First Monday Gatherings nbspHave Been Discontinued Impromptu Tribes Hill Gatherings Encouraged
A Tribes Hill Gathering

Although the traditional first Monday gatherings had been suspended, due in part to Covid, the opportunity to host an impromptu gathering of the host's design, any day of the week, is encouraged now.

In the past, Tribes Hill held monthly gatherings that included a song circle on the first Monday of every month. Sometimes we would change the date to accommodate holidays. They began at 6:30 with dinner prep and music. We served our traditional pasta and salad dinner with potluck additions at 7 pm. After dinner, music would continue until about 10:30 with a collaborative song share with our friends.

Email Rick Rock at fmrock@live.com or phone him at (914) 564-9212 if interested in hosting a gathering.
