    MAHWAH MUSEUM LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS

    Thursday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m.,

    By Elaine Freed Lindenblatt

    Ramapo Reformed Church Education Building, 100 Island Rd.

    To reserve, please email programs@mahwahmuseum.org or call 201-512-0099.
    Opened in 1921 by Ruben Freed, The Red Apple Rest in Southfields, Orange County, was a well-known stop on Route 17 for many on their way to and from the Catskills, Albany, Lake George and other upstate New York destinations. By the time the NY State Thruway opened 25 years later, The Red Apple Rest was serving over a million customers a year. With the opening of the Thruway, lines at the restaurant had shrunk, but loyal customers continued to be drawn there, and The Red Apple Rest continued to thrive. The Rest was a local tradition, a place where travelers, locals and entertainers mixed. Lindeblatt describes its early days during the depression, WWII and post war years, as well as the effects that NY State Thruway and the growth of suburbia had on the iconic rest stop.
    Admission is free to Museum members and $3 for non-members. Refreshments will be served.

    The Mahwah Museum receives operating support from The New Jersey Historical Commission, Dept. of State.

  • | NATL - Seasonal
    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.
