The Hidden History of the Roe Jan Region in Copake Falls – This weekend, features extra hours for Copake Falls Day! Saturday, August 17th (Copake Falls Day) 10 am to 4 pm Sunday, open 2 to 4 pm

Multi-media, history-rich panels, and the unique and beautiful baskets themselves, allow you experience and learn all about the legendary baskets and basket makers of the Taghkanic Hills, including a rare short 1971 film by documentarian Jack Ofield featuring one of the last Taghkanic basketmakers, Elizabeth Proper. See and learn about the time Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver, Goodfellas) brought his cameras to Copake to shoot part of his first feature film! See the campus of the world-renowned Claverack College, now erased with from history with almost no trace! See rare pictures of baseball legend Babe Ruth on his many visits to Copake Falls and find out why an illegal prizefight at Boston Corner lost Massachusetts an entire town to the State of New York!

New additions include the amazing story of how a Roeliff Jansen Central School graduate lost his high school class ring back in 1958, and remarkably had it returned to him only this summer – 61 Years later! – after it was found under the ground by a Copake Falls man using a metal detector! There is also a new section about the historic Roeliff Jansen Central School building on Route 22. History: Hidden in Plain Sight is a story with a still-uncertain ending, but a one whose roots run deep in this community.

The Hudson Valley Academy of the Performing Arts will present its seventh annual production of The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 9th. Two performances, one at 2 pm and one at 6 pm, will take place at the Taconic Hills Performing Arts Center, located within the Taconic Hills Central School District campus at 73 County Route 11A, Craryville, NY.

This classic holiday ballet, set to the full score of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, will feature performances by Academy dance students hailing from towns across Columbia and Greene Counties, including Catskill, Hillsdale, Chatham, Copake, Coxsackie, Ghent, Austerlitz and Hudson, among others.

Professional guest performers Nancy Richer and Doug Baum will dance the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Ms. Richer completed her dance studies at the San Francisco Ballet School and went on to perform with The Los Angeles Ballet, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet at The Kennedy Center, and the Intermezzo Dance Company, directed by American Ballet Theater soloist Craig Salstein. Recently, she has worked with Twyla Tharp on the creation of two new works and has danced with The Royal Danish Ballet in the premiere of Silja Schandorff’s and Nikolaj Hubbe’s Swan Lake in Copenhagen, Denmark. Mr. Baum graduated from the Baltimore School for the Arts and received his BFA from Fordham in collaboration with The Ailey School, where he apprenticed with Aily II for two years. Since then, he has toured internationally for two years with Rasta Thomas Bad Boys of Dance Compagnie Flak and Les Ballets Jazz, and has completed three seasons with Zhukov Dance Theater in addition to many guest performances. He joined Complexions Contemporary Ballet in 2014.

Tickets for The Nutcracker are $15 for adults, $5 for children, and may be purchased at hvapa.com or at the door.

The Hudson Valley Academy of the Performing Arts was founded in 2006 by Debra Jo Tice-Hughes, and is located at 957 Route 82 in West Taghkanic. The Academy offers dance classes for ages three and up in classical ballet, jazz, tap, and choreography, as well as fitness classes. For more information, please visit hvapa.com.

Spotlight(R)
128 mins. Starring Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams

Showtimes: week of Friday 1/29 through Thursday 2/4
5:00pm daily

“Spotlight is a taut, expertly told drama about the team of dedicated and tenacious Boston Globe reporters who, despite overwhelming odds, uncovered the sordid story of priestly pederasty in their fair city. It copped six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.”
- Peter Biskind

“It’s not a stretch to suggest that Spotlight is the finest newspaper movie of its era, joining Citizen Kane and All the President’s Men in the pantheon of classics of the genre.”
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Spotlight is a gripping detective story and a superlative newsroom drama, a solid procedural that tries to confront evil without sensationalism.”
- A.O. Scott, New York Times

“Spotlight feels both timeless and modern, a dexterously crafted film that could have been made anytime but somehow feels perfect for right now.”
- Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

Join His Holiness Venerable Chwasan, the Fourth Head Dharma Master of Won Buddhism this Sunday, September 6, 2015 from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
as we celebrate the centennial year of Won Buddhism.

The ceremony will include meditation, traditional percussion musical performance, ministers’ choir and the dharma talk by His Holiness Chwasan.

Traditional Korean vegetarian lunch will be served after the ceremony.

His Holiness Chwasan served as the Fourth Head Dharma Master of Won Buddhism, succeeding His Holiness Daesan.
He entered the Won Buddhist faith at the age of twenty and served as the head minister of the Chongno Temple. He also served as the Director of the Department of Culture in the Won Buddhist Headquarters and was a central member of the Supreme Council before being inaugurated as the Fourth Head Dharma Master in 1994.
Since stepping down as the Head Dharma Master in 2006, he has lived in the foothills of Mt. Mireuksan in Iksan city, South Korea, practicing and devoting himself to realize three great vows: world peace, reunification of South and North Korea, and healing the mind and heart of the modern individual.
He has written many books, including “The Principle and Training of the Mind,” “The Principle of Belief and its Awesome Power,” and “To Make a Home Paradise.”
His Holiness Chwasan envisions a worldwide community of truth and oneness.

All are welcome!
