FALL TEACHER PROGRAM
Coming this Fall: Join professional educators, historians, and local experts for a series of workshops devoted to sustainability, traditional crafts, food, and the immigrant experience. The workshops are open to teachers of K-12 and to those seeking personal enrichment. Depending on the requirements of individual school districts, teachers may have the opportunity to earn either professional development hours and/or a ½-credit toward salary increments.
Saturday, October 2nd, 9-12 am: The Immigrant Experience
Join Richard Wines, local historian and author, and Marie Fitzgerald, a retired professor of history, as they discuss the immigrant experience on the North Fork—then and now. Dr. Wines, who grew up on Sound Ave., will discuss the arrival of immigrants to the North Fork and how they established themselves and their families, developing into prosperous communities. Gain a glimpse of rural life during the Great Depression and follow Paul Hoffman, who led the efforts to restore the Cichanowicz House, as he leads participants through the “Cich House.” Dr. Fitzgerald will conclude the morning with a review and discussion of the 1930 Census. [Teachers hoping to earn credit will find this workshop particularly relevant.]
$50 per session/person
All participants will receive a copy of Receipts and Reminiscences of the Hallock Family and Friends, a delightful collection of family anecdotes, photos and recipes.
