Sembrich is a Blue Star museum
The Sembrich announces the second year of its participation in Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among about 1,800 museums across America to offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The complete list of participating museums is available at wraw.arts.gov/bluestarmuseums.
This policy is to be effective on the museum’s opening date of Saturday, June 15. The museum and grounds are open daily through September 15, and hours are from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
Typically the Sembrich’s museum admission charge is by donation.
Featured this year at the museum are two of Madame Sembrich’s rarely-seen costumes will be displayed: The garden scene gown from Verdi’s La Traviata, and a jeweled tunic she wore in Wagner’s Meistersinger, Sembrich director Beth Barton-Navitsky, said. “We look forward to welcoming the military personnel to the museum.”
Bolton residents slim down
A weight reduction program ongoing in Bolton is steadily increasing its membership, likely due to the current participants collectively losing more than 320 pounds, group representatives have said. This local Weight Watchers group is now meeting on Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m. at the Methodist church, 19 Stewart Ave. — and new enrollees are welcome.
BCS prom, party held
Bolton Central School’s Class of 2014 held their prom Saturday May 18 at The Sagamore’s Club Grill in Bolton Landing, and the theme was Starry Night.
This year the PTO hosted the after-prom party at The Sagamore Recreation Center. The students played basketball, mini golf, Wiffle Ball, Frisbee, ping-pong and many other games. Disc jockey Andy Pratt provided music and entertainment, conducting an array of games, and students won such prizes as: a biplane ride through the high peaks, a white water rafting trip, an iPad, an iPod touch, $100 cash prize, SPAC concert tickets, Adirondack Extreme passes, paddle board rentals, salon treatments and dinners for four from The Sagamore, plus many gift certificates from local restaurants
BCS Parent-Teacher Organization president Melanie Persons said she was grateful to those who helped with the event.
“Everyone really enjoyed the evening and the PTO is very thankful to all who donated their time and resources to this very worthwhile event,” she said.
