Bannerman Island Docent Picnic and Tour

Bannerman Island Docent Picnic and Tour

A lovely Spring day was had by all. Some of us went on to Dia Beacon, while others came early for breakfast on Main Street before the boat ride to sunny Pollopel Island. A band of docents shepherded us through the ruins and showed off old photos of the castle home and arsenal. This was a wonderful way to get to know more about our group .... it turned out that 3 participants knew each other from high school. And Jane Reed's description of Dobbs Ferry 54 years ago was a stitch! Back then short Italian ladies of indeterminate age walked everywhere, wearing knotted head kerchiefs with black dresses. Cedar and Main streets were quiet, almost empty of cars, and everyone knew everyone. Thank you docents for all you do at the Keeper's House!
