Food and music to save the Tompkins Corners Church in Putnam Valley

Members Kate and Jan Hoekstra, Lisa and Tim Pitt and others are organizing a Fall Festival at Niese's Maple Sugar Farm, 136 Wiccoppee Road, Putnam Valley, on Saturday and Sunday, October 8 and 9, to help save the Tompkins Corners Church as a center for the community. Food will be served from 9 am on. Music by many of the performers you love – jazz, country, folk, Irish, old time – begins at 11. Hayrides too.

New Grimm Play

Members Judy Allen, Chris Blossy and Jeff Green along with Elizabeth Breslin, Joe Niola, Simon Skolnik and Lew Zwick are the cast of Things Are Looking Grimm, a hydro-fractured fairy tale that is part of the Collaborative Concepts installation at the Saunders Farm, 853 Old Albany Post Road, Garrison, NY.  This Apple Tree Production - remember Cinderella, the green musical at AotL in May 2009? - will be performed this Saturday, Sept 17, at 3 pm (rain date: Sept 18).  Arrive early - the stage is at the top of a wonderful hill.
