I want to extend a special thank you to our guest speaker last month - Sylvia d’Alessandro from the Sandy Ground Historical Society. Ms. D’Alessandro gave us a wonderful overview of an important part of Staten Island history, a part that is sadly neglected. We heard about a unique part of NY and Staten Island history and you can learn more by visiting their museum here on Staten Island.
This month we will look at another unique part of Staten Island. Most of us are aware of the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art … but few of us have actually journeyed up Lighthouse Hill to visit it. Have you wondered about that place? Come to our meeting and hear first hand about the museum and its offerings from the Executive Director – Meg Ventrudo.
Come join us at the Kells-Grennie American Legion Post at 2750 Amboy Road at 8pm.
I hope to see you then.
