The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor
The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor is located in New Windsor.
It commemorates the extraordinary sacrifices of America’s
servicemen and servicewomen who were killed or wounded in action.
Learn how the memorial came about, and the mission to collect and
preserve the stories of Purple Heart recipients.
Tues., Feb. 10 1-2 pm P. Bedrossian Fee: $15, Snow date Feb.
Living with a Star
The sun is the star in our neighborhood. It has always been a part
of the human story – our daily lives, the annual cycle of the
seasons, and a significant part of our pre-history. We cannot live
without it, and, at times, we can’t live with it! Learn how we
study the sun, how does it work, how old is it, and how long will
it last. What is the eleven-year cycle of sun spots? What are solar
flares and solar wind? How does the sun spawn the auroras high in
our atmosphere as well as other “space weather” effects here on
Earth. Why do we have to be concerned?
Thurs., Feb. 19 1-3 pm C. Holmes Fee: $15, Snow date Feb. 26
