Dear Friend of the Town of Rye:
I am very pleased to extend this invitation to you to be included in a unique book that the Rye 350 Committee will publish this fall commemorating the 350th Anniversary of the founding of the Town of Rye in 1660.
The book will include a history of the Town of Rye and three community history sections:
1. Histories of families who live, or lived, in the Town during the past 350 years;
2. Histories of businesses that operate, or previously operated, in the Town during the past 350 years;
3. Histories of community organizations that serve, or previously served, residents of the Town during the past 350 years.
Copies of the book will be distributed to libraries and schools and will be available to the public.
If you would like to submit a history for any, or all, of the community history sections (maximum of 500 words each) please send them to “Rye 350 Anniversary Book,” Town of Rye, 10 Pearl Street, Port Chester, New York 10573” or email them to email@example.com by September 30th. You may also include a photograph; original photographs will be returned to you.
I look forward to reading about your role in shaping the history of the Town of Rye!
