Will benefit environmental education at Garrison School
The Garrison School’s Environmental Education Committee invites members of the community to attend the third annual Think and Drink on Saturday, Jan. 23, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at 14 Cutler Lane in Garrison. The event raises funds for School Forest Day to be held on May 9, as well as other environmental education initiatives. This year, David Gordon will speak on community-building and environmental stewardship.
Gordon’s family pioneered educational and conservation initiatives in our area more than a century ago. His grandfather founded the Malcolm Gordon School in Garrison in 1927. An active environmental steward, Gordon has served on the Board of the Constitution Island Association and the original Garrison School Forest Committee. He has volunteered at School Forest Day since its inception. After the Malcolm Gordon School closed in 1990, Gordon worked with the Open Space Institute to preserve the Malcolm Gordon School property. This work led to OSI’s 1995 gift of Philipstown Park to the community.
Enjoy a variety of Trisha Mulligan’s fresh botanically infused spirits blended in partnership with handcrafted syrups & bitters from More Good in Beacon. Drinks will be accompanied by tasty seasonal nibbles, created by food writer Celia Barbour and the rest of the team.
