In 2019, the Founders Circle took a Hudson River immigrant poetry cruise! As we sailed up and down the Hudson with our pilot Jeff Farber, we read poetry by immigrant authors to this area describing its natural beauty.
Our private Founders Circle reception in August 2020 included a presentation by mural artist Julia Vogl and opportunities to spray paint.
Our private Founders Circle reception in June 2021 included a preview of "The Making of Stitched Together," a short film by Paula Mitchell featuring interviews with the students and teachers behind our courtyard and front windows exhibition.
