9/26/2015 HARVEST MOON FUNDRAISER
The Frederic Remington Art Museum will be holding its big fundraiser party, Harvest Moon, on Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 7 to 11 PM . ?
 
This event marks a major shift. It replaces the museum's annual Holiday Gala, a December tradition 31 years old last December. The volunteer committee has revisioned the event and wants everybody to know. We hope to attract seasonal residents before they return to their winter homes, as well as new people from near and far.
 
The price of the Harvest Moon event will include many of the features of the Holiday Gala, but at a price reduced by $20. ?The c?ost is $40 members/$45 non-member. Pre-pay early and receive a $5 discount.? ?Our great hope is that this lowered price will entice many more people from Ogdensburg, and well beyond. The Gala attracted visitors from as far as Syracuse, Ottawa and Brockville, and we hope to continue building the audience for Harvest Moon. ??
 
?The silent auction held at the event will include original art by some ?of the artists included in this year's Members' Juried Art Exhibit, including Bruce Millen of Kingston brucemillen.com and Paul N. Pedersen of Hermon www.paulnpedersen.com. It also includes some high value items, including home tickets to a Detroit Redwings game, donated by goalie Jimmy Howard, 4 day passes to Disney World, an overnight stay at Singer Castle, a Rhythm clock by Karla's Christmas Shoppe and Petersons Painting, and many other desirable items.
 
The funds raised from Harvest Moon and its silent auction are vital to our work of preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the art and archives of Frederic Remington, and to providing educational tours, hands-on art experiences, and other great experiences for children and their families at Kid’s Place, ?the museum's education center.  
 
The Frederic Remington Art Museum is located at 303 Washington Street, Ogdensburg, NY 13669.

Just Eat it
A Food Waste Story
 
Monday, September 28, 2015
7:15 pm
Roxy Theater
20 Main St., Potsdam
 
September is Hunger Action Month, a time for inspiring action to solve the problem of hunger in our midst. To help raise awareness of some of the troubling aspects of our food system, GardenShare has again teamed up with Cinema 10. Join us on September 28 to see  Just Eat It, a new documentary. 
 
Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking.

More information about the screening and a public discussion facilitated by David Sommerstein will be available soon.
 
Tickets are $4.50, students and seniors $3.50.
