Roosevelt will talk about his life, career and accomplishments, including his domestic political agenda known as the Square Deal and foreign policy. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the president and ask questions. Following the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901, Roosevelt, then 42, became the youngest president in history.

The dinner, catered by Bridgecreek Catering, will be based on recipes and foods favored by Roosevelt. Period music will be performed by Julie and Jim Paradies.

Tickets are $150 and require a prepaid reservation by May 27.  For more information, call 845-831-8172 or email [email protected]
