A Stroll Back in time
Sunday, September 9, 2018
2018 is the 150th anniversary year of the Heritage Home for Women providing service to the community. The theme for the year is “Reflections” as we celebrate both their illustrious past, as well as their future.
The Home has held several wonderful events already this year in honor of their landmark anniversary. In February, they held a “Silver Tea” at the Home. Then in March, they held an “Antiques Roadshow Appraisal Day” at the Home. In April, at the historic Stockade Inn, was“Reflections – an Anniversary Celebration”.
Summer is drawing to a close and the Home is gearing up for our Stroll Back in Time event! Rumor has it that a number of participants in the Stroll will be participating wearing their finest Victorian attire.
The "A Stroll Back in Time" will be held on Sunday, September 9th (the actual anniversary date), stepping off at 8:30 a.m.. starting from the present Heritage Home location, past Union College to the original Home site at 237 Green Street in the Stockade section of Schenectady. An easy 2 mile downhill stretch.
We encourage all strollers and supporters along the way to dress in Victorian garb as well. Strollers can get their Victorian apparel from The Costumer for a 10% discount!
Stroller registration and pledge forms are available at the Home or on this website.
A new addition to our 150th anniversary festivities, will be the fabulous Broad Street Trio. They are to perform at the Heritage Home for Women on September 17th at 2 p.m. The trio is comprised of flutist Elizabeth Chinery, cellist Jay Shulman and pianist David Smith. All are truly gifted performers with extensive musical backgrounds and expertise. Ms. Chinery is also performing September 22 at the Rosewood Fanning Launch Recital at Union College. Rosewood Fanning, sponsor of our recital, is a local not for profit organization that produces Musical Competitions (www.rosewoodfanning.org).
We are thrilled to have the Broad Street Trio come to play for our Residents and guests. Seating will be limited, so please contact Sheila at the Home in advance regarding your attendance at 518-374-6921.
