Whatever the name, people have been collecting these fascinating pieces of washed up treasure for centuries all over the world, but most specifically in Norwalk, CT. With its long industrious and recreational past, find out why Norwalk is a choice sea glass location in Alyssa Shapiro's new lecture: Sea Glass: History and Mystery. Ever wonder where the glass comes from and how to tell its age? Ms. Shapiro has the answers.

  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world

  • | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Taconic Opera Gala
    - Great food, gorgeous arias about children, and a tribute to honorees for their contributions to the arts in their communities.

    Taconic Opera, now in its 19th season and past recipient of the Arts Organization of the Year Award in Westchester County, will hold its annual creative and highly entertaining fundraiser on Thursday, September 15, 2016, at 7:00 pm at the C.V. Rich Mansion, 305 Ridgeway, White Plains, NY. The Gala’s theme, Opera Has a Baby, will feature visiting artists who will perform famous operatic arias about young children while guests dine on a sumptuous meal in peaceful serenity - minus the noise, mess and spills of young children! This event is an upbeat and unique way to honor three persons who have contributed to the arts and to their communities: Jun Nakabayashi, Georgianna Mitchell and Darrell Babboni. All Gala proceeds support Taconic Opera’s diverse and exciting 2016-2017 season of events, details of which can be found on the company’s website.

    Jun Nakabayashi, Taconic Opera’s Music Director and Conductor for 16 of its 19 seasons and has not only been an invaluable asset and a main contributor to the company’s longevity. He also serves on the faculty of the acclaimed Hoff-Barthelson Music School in Scarsdale where he conducts the Festival Orchestra of young musicians and gives classes in conducting. The orchestra was selected by the New York Philharmonic for a unique partnership called the Philharmonic Academy, Jr., whose goal is to help prepare the next generation of orchestra players.

    Georgianna (Gem) Mitchell has had extensive not-for-profit board and volunteer experience over the last twenty years. With her background in business management, she joined the Taconic Opera Board in 2009 to contribute to the continued success of the company and has also been a generous supporter of the arts in general.

    Darrell Babboni is the president of one of the largest construction and home maintenance companies in Westchester County, HoneyDoMen. A self-made entrepreneur, he is being honored not only for his longstanding support of Taconic Opera but also for his philanthropy in support of several organizations and services in his community that help the most vulnerable.

    Attendance at the Gala will be by a partially tax deductible donation: Gold $250; Silver, $200; Bronze $150. Discounts are available for groups of two or more and tables for eight. Start time: 7:00 pm. Tickets and reservations can be arranged online at http://www.taconicopera.org or by calling 1-855-886-7372.
