The Friends were delighted to host the Annual Awards Event of the Association of Social Studies Teachers of Westchester, Putnam and Rockland Counties.
It took place on May 25th at 4 p.m at the Keeper’s House. It’s good news for us that teachers realize the importance of history especially local history which sometimes can be undervalued with so much emphases on math and science. Mavis gave a short talk on the history of the Aqueduct encouraging the teachers to bring their students next time. Susan Chester, president of the Association gave a lively account of the accomplishments of each awardee.
