Community Caregivers in partnership with Albany Guardian Society present: Lunchtime Chats

Tuesdays and Fridays from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Friday, August 7th – 1:00 p.m. Shaker Heritage Museum

You may know about Shaker furniture, have seen a Shaker oval box, hummed the Simple Gifts song (‘Tis a gift to be simple, ‘tis a gift to be free…) or worn a Shaker stitch sweater, but did you know that Albany was the site of the first Shaker settlement in America? Lorraine Weiss, Education Coordinator from the Shaker Heritage Museum will tell you all about the Shakers and some of their inventions.

A few minutes before 1 o’clock, call 518-992-6661 to listen and learn. If you prefer to receive a call, please contact Community Caregivers at 518-456-2898 or by email at [email protected]s.org.
