Wishing You Peace & More Jay in 2018!
THANKS TO YOU, our 25th Anniversary Year was one for the record books! We served MORE students of every age from 9 - 90 . MORE volunteers & MORE donors stepped up to the plate. And now thanks to a major year-end grant from our longtime partner Con Edison , we will be able to offer MORE FREE school visits in 2018!

But there is so much more to be done. Please consider renewing your membership or making a year-end gift. We are so very grateful for all you do to make every New Year happy for the community that we serve together!
It was an inspiring and informative day. The ultimate confirmation was on the faces of our students, as they absorbed and were engaged in the many facets and opportunities for learning -- the dramatization and playacting, employing imagination and empathy, looking closely and searching for meaning in details, examining the prevailing political and economic interests and ways of life of the time, reading and touching precious artifacts and documents.
