Our machine sewing classes with Solange Bitol Hansen have been super popular! Join us for a sewing class just for kids 8 and up! This class is capped at 6 people, but a waitlist will be kept. Because of high demand, we ask that if you register and cannot attend, that you cancel with 48 hours notice. If you do not give a MINIMUM of 48-hour notice of a cancellation, you will not be able to re-register for another session. If you are interested, please email Tasha at firstname.lastname@example.org. You MUST include your/your child’s name and age, and your phone number. You will receive a confirmation. Register soon, as space and supplies are limited!

In 1925, a highly bigoted Army War College report stated that African American men were of little value in times of war. By World War II, the American military was still racially segregated, and many black Americans were still subject to Jim Crow laws. The Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces, were subjected to discrimination both within and outside of the army. Join us to celebrate Veteran’s Day, and to learn more about this group of black men, who proved they could take down enemy aircraft and racial barriers at home. This program will take place on Zoom, and registration is required. Please register here. This program is presented in collaboration with the Greenburgh, John C. Hart Memorial, and Somers Public Libraries.
