In honor of Women's History Month, Lorraine Weiss, Shaker Heritage Society education coordinator and WCA member, will present "In Her Rightful Place: Women's Roles In Shaker Community."

  Lorraine is a historic preservation planner and educator. She has been involved with the WCA since 2005 during the resurgence, has served on the Strategic Planning Committee and has coordinated Good Books for Good Works events for many years.   

You may know about Shaker furniture, have seen the distinct Shaker oval boxes, hummed the Simple Gifts song (‘Tis a gift to be simple, ‘tis a gift to be free … ') and even worn a Shaker stitch sweater, but did you know that the Shakers’ first permanent settlement was right here in Albany County?

Porch, Accessibility Ramp Near Completion

The long-awaited front porch project is nearly done. The accessibility ramp is complete with safety railings installed.

The next step will be to “Light Up the Ramp.” Thanks to 33 generous donors who contributed $11,865, the Club has designated funds to finish the work. The Porch Committee and architect are researching appropriate lighting fixtures.

Stay tuned for further updates about when we can “Light Up the Ramp."
