From: Buxton-Friendship Express []

Hello Villagers and Friends of Buxton.

We are pleased to share with you the Buxton-Friendship Express newsletter for the month of February 2015. We encourage you to share it with your family members and friends who may not be on our address list.

As you know, this year (2015), marks 175 years since our premier village was purchased by previously enslaved African labourers. We would like to encourage groups, particularly those in Buxton, to organize and promote events fitting this milestone. Let us show appreciation for the sacrifice, love and legacy from our ancestors!

In New York, we plan to have a 175th Anniversary Gala Banquet Celebration on May 16, 2015. Awards will be given to villagers for outstanding contributions and service to the community. There will be a keynote address, cultural presentations and a delicious assortment of traditional dishes. We would greatly appreciate your contribution and/or support.
