The evening will start with a Woodstock mixer, including photos, sounds, and snacks from the times. Anyone who was at Woodstock is asked to “come as you were” to share your stories and reminisce with other Woodstock alums. 

Michele Hax, a contributor in Susan Reynold’s new book, "Woodstock Revisited," will be on hand to share her personal experience. A representative from the Woodstock Preservation Society will also be in attendance.

The evening is free, but registration is required at Those who were there and would like to be a featured guest should call Suzanne Cruit at (610) 648-3219.
