Fourth Of July Celebration
On the morning of the Fourth of July, one lucky individual plays Paul Revere, riding through town announcing, “The British are coming!” After the ride, Buck Hillers raise the American flag before a parade commences. Decked in red, white, and blue, with a smattering of bunting about, onlookers watch vintage cars, a marching band, both joined by Camp Clubbers dressed to the annual theme. “It culminates with a social hour when everyone brings lemonade, cookies, and breakfast goodies to the pool and we have a little reception,” says Robbins. Here, members of Buck Hill proudly don distinctive buttons inscribed with their first year at Buck Hill. “It’s like a badge of honor, being an older person who has been here for a long time,” explains Robbins. Later in the day, lawn and pool games—egg toss, potato sack and three-legged races are among the fun—during a community-wide picnic at Metzgars’ Farm. Capping the festivities is a big fireworks show.
