Scenic Views – Experience The Catskill Region with CSSC
August 29, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Please join CSSC on Thursday, August 29, as we venture down to the Catskill Region of New York State to experience two historic sites, the historic homes of landscape painters, Thomas Cole and Frederick Church, in addition to a wonderful winery and a new bridge walkway across the Hudson River. Attendees will experience the same iconic views of the Hudson River Valley that inspired the landscape painters of Hudson River School, a 19th century American art movement. Their famous paintings typically depicted the Hudson River Valley and the surrounding area, including the Catskill, Adirondack, and White Mountains.
Premiere Transportation will be taking the group from The Beltrone Living Center at 8:30 a.m. to travel to the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill for a tour, then to walk across the 5,000-foot Rip Van Winkle Bridge’s Hudson River Skywalk, then on to Olana State Historic Site in Hudson for a tour and finally, to the Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent for a wine tasting. We expect to be back to The Beltrone Living Center by 5:30 p.m.
Please note: This outing will involve quite a bit of walking and we suggest you wear comfortable shoes/clothing and be prepared for the weather. A recently awarded NYS grant is assisting with the transportation costs of this outing. To cover the cost of admission to the two historic sites, a boxed lunch, snacks on the bus and tasting fees, a non-refundable fee of $76 will be charged.
Space is limited. To make a reservation, please call Sharon Herald at (518) 459-2857 ext. 302
