Mainstream in the Community
Join us for a series of fun and informative seminars in local communities on a variety of creative and interesting topics. All are welcome!
From Hunter-Gatherers to Farmers, Native Americans in the Eastern Woodlands
Examine Native American cultures and adaptations over the past 14,000 years. A changing climate, the end of the last ice age and population movements resulted in the development of many prehistoric cultures and diverse ways of life. Native American continuous occupation on the land is readily apparent through the archaeological record. Populations grew and declined, trade and ritual activity became more complex, and relationships to the land changed. Offered at The Shames JCC on the Hudson, 371 South Broadway, Tarrytown. Advance registration on-line at www.shamesjcc.org or by calling 914-366-7898. Fee: $5 per person 4 Fri., Feb. 7-28, 10:30 am-12:30 pm. E Boesch.
*Funding for this seminar is provided through a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on Aging: NYS Office for the Aging and Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services. All welcome!
Written in 1814, “The Star-Spangled Banner” is the most controversial song in United States history and it continues to inflame passions. Learn about the fascinating hidden history about our national anthem, punctuated by live musical renditions of the song’s original version. Listen to other tunes considered for anthem status. Why did “The Star-Spangled Banner” become our national anthem? Did Jimi Hendrix perform the first controversial version? Why do many Americans stand, cross their hearts and take off their hats when it airs?
