Shakespeare Festival Performs for Seniors

 

Putnam’s senior citizens were treated to a special performance of Much Ado About Nothing by members of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival last week at the Putnam County Golf Course in Mahopac.  Mahopac and Cold Spring seniors mixed it up on Monday, Aug. 11 while Putnam Valley and Carmel seniors intermingled at the County owned golf course on Wednesday, Aug. 13. Seniors arrived at 10 a.m. in in order to have time to get acquainted with each other before having lunch and enjoying the show.

 

A special presentation was made at the Aug. 13 gathering when County Executive MaryEllen Odell honored graphic artist Michael Cicale, a Putnam Valley resident who created the new red, white and blue logo for the county’s Office for Senior Resources, with a proclamation.
