Presentation on Memory Loss

A conceptual look at Alzheimers disease, and some of the problems it brings.

Thursday – July 21 – 4:30 PM

On Thursday July 21 at 4:30 PM the Claverack Free Library will host an educational program by the Alzheimer’s Association. Molly McCann of the Northeast NY chapter of the association will present basic facts about memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease, which is not a normal part of aging. The program provides information on detection, causes and risk factors, stages of disease, treatment, and more. The intended audience is anyone with a friend or family member affected by Alzheimer’s disease or dementia – in other words, almost everyone.

This 90 minute program is free, but pre-registration is encouraged, via email to news@claveracklibrary.org or phone 518 851-7120. Questions are encouraged, and refreshments will be served.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the NY State Department of Health.

Percussionist Bobby Previte – July 9

15 Minutes of Fame to Benefit the New Claverack Library

Percussionist Bobby Previte at the New Library building

 

Building opens at 5:30 PM
Performance rehearsal at 6:00 PM
Performance Live Broadcast at 6:30 PM on WGXC 90.7 FM

Tickets are $10.00 (cash or check)

 

Get a sneak peak inside the new Claverack Library building! The new Claverack Library will be the venue for An early evening for traffic noise, random phrases, partygoers, and drums, a performance conducted by Bobby Previte on Saturday evening, July 9.

Bobby Previte, Guggenheim fellow, legendary drummer and critically acclaimed composer, has created an original piece for the Claverack Library to be performed only once. It will be broadcast live on WGXC 90.7 FM.

This event will feature audience participation of all ages. You don’t need to play an instrument to garner your 15 minutes of fame, but you do need to bring your reading glasses! Also participating in this benefit event will be the Old Klaverack Brewery, offering tastes of their craft beers. There will be soft drinks and snacks for all.

The building will open for tours and refreshments at 5:30. There will be a short rehearsal at 6:00 for the performance to be broadcast at 6:30. Tickets are $10. In case fame, an original work by Bobby Previte, exciting architecture, local food and drink, and the opportunity to contribute to the library are not enough for you, everyone in attendance will be given a book to take home.

This is the first among many concerts planned for the new library, presently undergoing renovation. Curious members of the community can get their first glimpse inside the former A. B. Shaw Firehouse, re-purposed to create a 21st century library and community center.

Parking is behind the current library at 629 Route 23B
