Every year I think I'm going to plant a flower garden that would rival the ones that my Grandmother had (flowers everywhere, every possible kind, and all of them were gorgeous.)
Labor Day Weekend And Beyond In Nyack
Dated: September 6 2015
Pretty soon, we won't be wearing our summer whites as per dress protocol and we will be nibbling away at the last of the remarkably sweet New Jersey corn- dripping with melted sweet cream butter and sprinkled with sea salt and fresh milled cracked black pepper. And we will be tenderly turning the last few tucked away ripening zebra striped heirloom tomatoes. But there will be a season of wonderful homegrown apples, Galas and Honey Crisps- I actually had one of the first ones of the fall season! coming up this fall, and lots of all sorts of squash, butternut, acorn, spaghetti and acres of pumpkins to pick for carving and yummy homemade pumpkin pie! Such wonderful bounty from the earth to look forward to and to be grateful for!
In the meantime, there are a few new and also older traditional favorite local events to look forward to as well. On Sunday, September 13, 2015, the Concert for Remembrance will be held at the Grace Episcopal Church, 130 First Avenue, Nyack, NY, 10960 starting promptly at 5:00PM. The Orchestra, comprised of professional musicians from the Greater New York Metropolitan Area has continued to grow with ever more and more wonderful musicians who gather together to remember, honor and to celebrate the lives of those loved ones lost and saved on September 11th. The concert, the day, is always heartbreakingly beautiful and full of emotion and it is a lovely event to attend. It is sponsored by Allison and Jeff Crowther, who's son- Remy, The Man With The Red Bandana, rescued many people on that horrrible, dreadful day before succumbing to death himself. The program is as follows; "Nocturne for Strings", Alan Shulman. "Here, There and Everywhere", John Lennon, arr. Ed Simons. "Solo Piece" TBA, Annamae Goldstein. "Lullaby", by Rebecca Clarke- Barbara Alan and Desiree Elsevier. "Seigfried Idyll", Wagner- conducted by Holly Druckman. Lobet den Herrn, Bach- arranged and conducted by Holly Druckman with the beautiful voices of The Holly Druckman Concert Choir. Parking will be tight, but has been arranged for at St. Ann's School and on nearby streets. Parking is free in Nyack on Sundays. Be aware that the day promises to be sunny and hot in the low 80's, which means that it will be rather hot in the church- as usual, so please dress accordingly!
Sunday is also the day of the Nyack Street Fair 'September Fest", full of (undoubtedly) massive crowds- as it is the last Street Fair of the season, before winter's pall drifts upon our shoulders and deprives us of our daily doses of Vitamin D! The day is full of trinkets to be had, collectibles to be collected, antiques to be found, bought and hidden away as gifts for Hannukah, Christmas, Birthdays and Valentines Day. There are booths where one can get ones hands henna'd and fake tattoos applied. And an endless variety of artisanal foods and foods with tremendous ethnic flavor and unique style- and of course- so silly, I always wait for the braided pretzel guy who has all of those fantastic mustards to dip the pretzels into, diagonally across the street from me here at Wright Brothers Real Estate, 53 South Broadway, Nyack, NY. Parking IS free on Sundays in Nyack but remember that the streets are closed off and so you guys are on your own to find a parking place. Again, it will be in the low 80's, lots of sun, little to no shade, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, hats and sunblock and really enjoy the day. It is one of the more fun final flings before fall!!
As we come into fall, make sure that you get to The Orangeburg Library, 20 South Greenbush Road, Orangeburg, NY, 10962, for Ray Wright's photographic show, Return Of The Bald Eagle To Rockland County, 9/3/15- 10/1/15. On Sunday, September 27th, 2015 at 2:00PM, Ray Wright, the photographer, will be presenting a digital slide show covering Five Years of Rockland Eagles, followed by a reception with the photographer at 3:00PM. In a brief interview with Ray, he revealed that the Piermont Pier, Rockland Lake and Lake Tappan are some of his favorite haunts for photography. He has seen much of the natural world and wildlife, especially at Lake Tappan. He has seen Great (White) Egrets, families of Swans, Cormorants flying overhead and Great Blue Herons as well. He has also even seen a Green Heron and a Bald Eagle chasing down an Osprey which was clutching a fish in it's claws. That Bald Eagle really wanted that fish! And if you want any of his marvelous photographs, they are all for sale! For more information regarding this show and others of interest, please call the Orangeburg Library at 1-845-359-2244x.10 or go to http//www.orangeburg-library.org/ Please register online, by phone or in person.
