Karen Pillsworth, named Storyteller Laureate in 2002 by the City of Kingston, told Hanukkah and Reher Bakery stories as part of Kingston’s Sinterklaas Send-Off. Dozens of visitors huddled into the Reher bakery storefront for the November 24 event, which is a non-denominational and intercultural holiday tradition intended to unify Kingston’s neighborhoods. The Send-Off launches Sinterklaas from the Kingston Waterfront (a.k.a “Spain”) to his destination across the river.
Our first Open House, on July 7th, was a smash success. Special thanks to the Creepy Uncles, Continentals, and Tablo Musiko for their wonderful music, and to Mariner’s Harbor, Dolce, Grounded, and Kingston Wine Company for the delectable spread.
