November

Posted by admin. Comments Off on November

Time flies!  Here we are halfway through November and I’m just catching up.

Saturday November 17 we will be celebrating International Gaming Day by playing board games from 10:30-3:30.  We have a large number of games here and people are always welcome to bring a favorite game from home to play.  Come with your family, come with your friends, come alone and join someone here, play one game or twenty!  It’s very open ended – just have fun.  We will also have a jigsaw puzzle set up for people to work on.

Tuesday November 20 at 7 pm will be the last program in the series Reuniting a Community With Its History: Three Centuries of Life and Work on the Hudson River in Corinth.  This will be a Community Conversation On the Hudson River facilitated by Stephen Cernek of the Hudson River Museum Project.  It provides an opportunity to discuss ideas about current and future uses of the Hudson River in Corinth.  The project featured a series of seven public programs that explored the social, cultural and economic importance of the Hudson River in Corinth’s history. They were offered in conjunction with the installation of three interpretive historic panels along the Hudson by the Village of Corinth, with support provided by the Hudson River Community Credit Union.

These programs are made possible and sponsored by a Humanities New York Action Grant. “Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in these programs do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.”

Thursday November 22 we will be closed for Thanksgiving Day.  Have a wonderful holiday.

Monday November 26 at 7 pm is Science Monday.  Join us as we play around with science concepts using a variety of fun tools like Legos, robots, and mazes.
