1960 was a momentous year.
The Civil Rights Act became law. “The Flintstones” debuted on TV. The laser and the cardiac pacemaker were invented. The Olympic Summer Games were held in Rome. JFK won the presidency and Dwight Eisenhower completed his second term. The U.S. sent the first contingent of troops to Vietnam. The Alfred Hitchcock classic film “Psycho” and Harper Lee’s classic novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” were released. Chubby Checker introduced us to a dance craze called The Twist.
Oh, and the East Greenbush Rotary Club was founded.
It is that founding of what now is known as the Southern Rensselaer County club we are planning to celebrate, and we’d like to have you and your loved ones join us.
The date: Thursday, March 5, 2020.
The venue: The Berkshire Ballroom of the Comfort Inn on Miller Road in Castleton.
The event: We’ll have a catered dinner and bar, and plenty of surprises.
So, please circle and save that date on your calendar. We’ll provide details as arrangements are firmed up, but we wanted to let you know the date well in advance.
Meanwhile, if you have any suggestions about what you would like to have the event include, please let event coordinator Bill Dowd know.
