ASHC has busy schedule from spring through fall


Andes — A wide variety of programs is on the schedule in the coming months for the Andes Society for History and Culture.
Six events are being planned from May through October, four of which will be held at the Pleasant Valley Meeting House (PVMH) and its adjacent hall. That will be the site for the first program, on Saturday, May 16, when the “Tremperskill Boys,” a local musical group, will be performing at 7 p.m.
The society has recently received the donation of a portrait of Osman Steele, the Delaware County undersheriff who was killed in the Town of Andes during the Anti-Rent War action in 1845. The painting, now appropriately covered in calico, will be unveiled on Saturday, May 23 at 2 p.m. at The Hunting Tavern and Museum.
A second musical program, also at PVMH, will feature Bob Sprague and Company, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 6.
On Saturday, Aug. 8, Andes will hold its annual “Community Day,” and the tavern and museum will be among the centers of activity. Events of the day are still being scheduled.
The Pleasant Valley facilities will host the traditional Shavertown Old Home Day, with a potluck luncheon beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6, and memory sharing taking place all afternoon. Those who lived in all of the communities now covered by the Pepacton Reservoir are invited to join in the festivities.
The final program of the season at PVMH will be on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m., when Dave Ruch will perform traditional and historic songs of New York State.
