No, it's not an invasion, but a chance to learn some new things in history. The Historical Society of Rockland County has an exhibit that tells a (until recently) top secret story. In 1944, an army unit made up of art students, actors, and sound technicians went to Europe and pretended to be various army units. They also painted and drew their way across Europe. Many of the members of this unit still reside in the area, including Bill Sayles from South Nyack and Ned Harris of New City. Their story is being told on Wednesdays through Sundays, noon to 4PM, at the Historical Society, 20 Zukor Road, New City, NY. Cost is $7 for adults and $3 for children (under 12) who are non-members. Members can view the exhibit for free.
