This year, as it is the Quadricentennial of Henry Hudson’s 1609 voyage, our biggest fundraiser of the year will be a glorious river party on the broad lawn that stretches from a high bluff down to the river’s edge at the home of our board chairman Lisa Fox Martin and Dick May, featuring a 180-degree view of the Hudson River. The evening will include cocktails by the pool followed by a classic Hudson Valley supper around a great open tent while admiring the fireworks overhead and the twinkling lights of the many small boats below. The rain date is Sunday July 5th. Tickets are $125 or $100 for members. Sponsorships are available at the Platinum ($1500), Gold ($1000) and Silver ($500) levels. Checks may be sent to the Thomas Cole Historic Site, PO Box 426, Catskill, NY 12414 or you may register online at http://www.thomascole.org/visit_exhibitions.htm.
