Upcoming Events

Cusie PhotoWe hope you’re making plans to join us for our special reception in honor of Marcuse Pfeifer! The event will be held at the center on Saturday, October 24, from 4-7 pm and your generous tax-deductible gift will help us continue her legacy of keeping our building as beautiful as she’s made it.

We’re thrilled to announce that Marty Singleton and Kent Cottam will be treating Marcuse and our guests to two very special songs. They were formerly with the Metropolitan Opera Chorus and now live in Newburgh. We’re so grateful they’ll be coming here to sing for Marcuse and stay tuned for other delightful surprises!
