The Van Cortlandtville Historical Society will host an Open House on Sunday, October 5, from 2 to 4 p.m., at The Little Red Schoolhouse, 297 Locust Avenue, Cortlandt Manor, New York.  The event is open free to the public. Visitors will be given a guided tour of the 19-century one-room schoolhouse, which until the mid-1970s was still functioning as part of the Lakeland Central School District.  The schoolroom and adjoining meeting room of the Society has books, photographs and classroom items dating back to that early era.   Light refreshments will be available. The Little Red Schoolhouse is located at the north end of Locust Avenue next to Old Saint Peter’s Church and cemetery, just south of Oregon Road in the Town of Cortlandt.  For more information:  Visit our website at www.vancort.net; or, call (914) 736-7868.    ____________________________

   Annual Luncheon Meeting and Election 
will be held Friday, November 21, 2014,from 12 noon to 3 p.m. at the Cortlandt Colonial Restaurant, 5714 Albany Post Road, Cortlandt Manor (by the old rock cut). Please consider bringing a guest; this is a great opportunity to share all the wonderful things our Society has done and continues to do. This flier is the official notification about this event; there will not be a separate mailing. Author and journalist Anthony Musso, left, will present a program on Hidden Treasures of the Hudson Valley, based on his two-volume work in which he explores 110 lesser known historic sites throughout the region. Mr. Musso retired in 2008 from a 38-year career as a writer, editor and media spokesperson for the United States Postal Service. His work has been published in area newspapers and he maintains a full schedule of speaking engagements with civic groups, historical societies and other organizations. His books will be for sale at the luncheon.
Our lunch service in the banquet room will consist of soup, salad, rolls and butter, with a main course selection of prime rib, chicken marsala or stuffed sole, plus potatoes and vegetables, followed by coffee, tea and dessert. The total price per person, including tax and gratuity, is only $24.
