Upcoming History Programs

The following articles come from recent issues of the Rensselear County Advertiser newspaper.

Greenbush Historical Society Meeting
Join the Greenbush Historical Society on Sunday, march 18th, at 2 PM for a delightful afternoon of Irish music. Ireland has produced an abundance of songs about people and struggles, happiness, and sadness. Don Kelly, a local musician, will charm us with his acoustical guitar and sometimes haunting melodies of the Emerald Isle. Enjoy learning the history behind some of the classic folk songs. Wear your green and sing along if you like!

The program will be held at the East Greenbush Library. It is free and open to all, but do please register for the event by calling 518-477-7476.
