The Senior Village Movement Monday
Learn about how “villages” modeled after Beacon Hill Village in Boston, are being formed for seniors throughout the Capital Region. Villages are membership-driven, grassroots organizations that, through both volunteers and paid staff, coordinate access to affordable services to assist aging in place. These services can include recreational, health and wellness programs, home repairs, social programs, and educational activities. Learn how you can be involved in the Village movement through the Capital Region Villages Collaborative. Our speaker will be Ken Harris, executive director of Albany Guardian Society.
Event starts at 12:15 p.m. Bring your lunch if you are on lunch hour.

The Roosevelts in Hyde Park
Join us at 4:00 p.m. for a talk titled “The Roosevelts in Hyde Park: The Hudson Valley’s Most Famous Neighbors.”
Our guest speaker will be Jeffrey Urbin, educational specialist at the FDR Library and Museum at Hyde Park.
Writes Jeffrey: “Most New Yorkers are not aware that the Nation’s Presidential Library System began right here in the Hudson Valley with the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum. It is not only America’s first presidential library, it is the only one used by a sitting president. The library’s archival holdings include the president’s personal and family papers, and papers covering his public career, Eleanor Roosevelt’s papers, as well as those of many of their associates. The archive is the permanent repository for 385 separate collections, 17 million pages of documents and more than 50,000 books and 130,000 photographs. The Museum collection contains more than 35,000 objects. Together these combine to tell the story of the Roosevelt Era: the most tumultuous time of the 20th century. This talk will introduce the audience to some of the many national treasures contained in the Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum.”
