Autumn Equinox Weekend Highlights!
On Saturday September 21 a history presentation, Shore to Shore, The Hudson River
as the Springboard for the Yorktown Campaign in the American Revolution was presented at Harmony Hall in Sloatsburg by Historian Dr. Robert Selig to a full room in the parlor.
The interesting PowerPoint focused on July 1 to August 26, 1781, when the Hudson River served as the main conduit of American and French personnel and supplies as it stood at the center of military activities aimed at laying siege to New York City.
The presentation, organized by Janet Burnet, also looked at the overall role the river played in the summer of 1781 with a focus on the crossing of the Hudson by the allied armies in August 1781. A lovely reception followed in the Harmony Hall dining room.
On Sunday, September 22, Curator Geoff Welch presented an Autumn Equinox program in the Parlor performing his own music on his Yamaha Montage Keyboard and showing his nature photography on the large screen. This was followed by some discussion of recordings of Autumn songs such as September Song by Joe Stafford. Cats, Geoff’s Multimedia music/photography piece
was performed by request and received applause!
