The Return of Our American History

We held our annual meeting at Watson’s Restaurant and Bar on the 15th, and a good time was had by all. Mike Adamovich and Cathy Hanson were welcomed as new board members.

Last night was our Halloween event featuring guest speaker Priscilla Keresy. We tried having a theme this year – an Evening at The Speakeasy.

And finally…returning in November…Our American History!

In deference to Putnam Valley’s Veteran’s Day ceremonies, November’s program will be held on Sunday November 12th at 1:00PM. Still at the Library, November’s program will feature Putnam County Historian Sarah Johnson, speaking about the Women’s Suffrage movement in our county.

December’s program will be back at it’s usual second Saturday morning time slot.

Annual Meeting

Our Annual Meeting is coming up on October 15th, with a new location and different time than years past…We’ll be meeting at Watson’s Restaurant and Bar at Oregon Corners for brunch from 12:00pm – 2:00pm this year instead of later in the day.

This year, we will be honoring the Tompkins Corners Cultural Center for all their contributions to the community. While invitations have been mailed out to our membership, anybody is welcome to attend. It’s $40.00 per person – and if you’d prefer to pay online rather than sending in a check, you can use the PayPal link on the right.
