Come one and all to celebrate Oswald Veblen's 138th birthday on Sunday, June 24 on the Veblen House grounds at Herrontown Woods. Veblen was recently featured in a cover story by the Princeton Alumni Magazine, and the Friends of Herrontown Woods has decided to celebrate his legacy with a potluck picnic next to the house he and his wife generously donated to the public trust.
The potluck picnic gathering goes from 2-5pm, and will include tours of our work to restore the Veblen House grounds and create a new botanical garden.
Park at the main parking lot off of Snowden Ave, across from the Smoyer Park entrance, then follow signs up to the house. Useful maps are at this link. We'll have a couple grills, hotdogs and lemonade. Please bring food or drink to share.
(The birthday picnic is a free event, but donations to support our work are always welcome.)
