December Blast from SXSHS
Email Blast from Schoharie Crossing's Education Coordinator:
I want to thank everyone who came out to the events. It was a great show of support for local as
well as state history.
Today is #GivingTuesday, which some of you may be hearing a
lot about – especially on social media.
The day is intended to focus on donating to charities as part of the
holiday season and giving to community, and while the Friends of Schoharie
Crossing would greatly appreciate a donation, we also understand that there
are so many great organizations out there that it is difficult to decide where
to donate monetarily. So, we ask if you
are unable to make a donation
of money to the group at this time, there are other ways to help support Schoharie
Crossing. One such way is to contact
your local politicians and tell them how important you think the site is to our
state heritage. Another great way to
help out is to set aside time to volunteer during our 2016 Visitor Season! Please contact me at the site for more
information or if you have questions on any of these options.
While it may seem like the Visitor Center is dormant until
May, we will be busy at work organizing programs & events for 2016 as well
as designing new student activities for field trips. Anyone who may be interested in being a part
of the planning can contact
me; your input would be greatly appreciated.
Additionally, the planning, writing and design of the 2017
exhibit continues…more to come on that in the future…
Best wishes for your holiday season and keep in touch!
