Dan & Andy show Aug. 25 in Raquette Lake

For those planning on attending the St. Williams on Long Point lecture on Thursday, Aug. 25, remember that the program will be held at the Raquette Lake School starting at 7 p.m.

This is the first and only "Adirondack Attic Musical History Tour" program this year with singer-songwriter Dan Berggren and author Andy Flynn.

The "Adirondack Attic Musical History Tour" vibrantly brings history to life. This special presentation mixes folk songs with stories and images from the archives of the Adirondack Museum.

The program has something for everyone, whether you are a lifelong Adirondacker or a visitor from outside the area interested in the history and time honored traditions that make up the Adirondack story.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Adirondack Attic: Catholic Summer School of America

I really enjoyed visiting the Clinton County Historical Association and Museum earlier this month to learn about the Catholic Summer School of America, which was in operation south of Plattsburgh on Lake Champlain from the mid-1890s to 1940.

Thanks to museum director Melissa Peck and volunteer Roger Black for their hospitality.

My Adirondack Attic program on the museum's display was aired Aug. 9 on North Country Public Radio. Listen to the program here.
