Extended museum hours
The Warrensburgh Museum has extended its hours, just a bit, to accommodate the needs of tourists and local residents alike during the summer and fall months. They already have a small corps of volunteers (you may be one of them) who welcome visitors during open hours, but it’s tough to fill our needs. They, like all of us, have numerous demands on their time.
Volunteering is easy. What’s in it for you? First is the great satisfaction of helping preserve Warrensburg’s wonderful history, and making it available to others. You’ll also receive discounts in our Book Corner, and, if you put in 25 or more hours a year, a special treat provided by the Historical Society. (It is not necessary to be a member of the Society.)
There are two-hour shifts: Wednesdays noon-2 p.m. and 2-4 p.m., Saturdays, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 1-3 p.m. and Sundays 1-3 p.m. Call 623-2207 or stop by the museum during open hours.
The Baccalaureate Service for the Warrensburg Central School Class of 2013, hosted by the Clergy of the Greater Warrensburg Ministerial Association, will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 20 at the Warrensburg Free Methodist Church, 250 River St. Refreshments will be served following the service.
Sembrich teams with Opera Saratoga
The Sembrich, located at 4800 Lakeshore Dr. in Bolton Landing, announces its second concert of the season: Opera Saratoga, A Warren County Bicentennial Celebration, scheduled for Saturday, June 15, at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $25.
This concert features the Young Artists of Opera Saratoga and pays tribute to Warren County during this bicentennial year by highlighting the operatic repertoire of two lakeshore divas, Marcella Sembrich and Louise Homer, and by recognizing the humble Warren County roots of Lake George Opera (now Opera Saratoga) at the Diamond Point Theatre, where the company debuted on July 5, 1962.
