ree Admission. Co-sponsored by the Rogers Memorial Library
 
STEP RIGHT UP! Celebrate National Circus Day and join us for a trip into this fascinating and iconic institution. When the final curtain fell on the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus last May, a 146-year American tradition-with roots in Ancient Greece and Rome-came to an end. The circus is a world within a world filled with acrobats, clowns, tightrope walkers, aerialists, and outrageous sideshows. On our journey we’ll meet two of America’s greatest showmen, P.T. Barnum and John Ringling, who created the golden age of American circuses. We will also consider the ethical issues surrounding the use of animals in modern circuses. Co-sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.

HOW THE JEWS
CAME TO LONG ISLAND

 
THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 1:00 PM
Rogers Memorial Library, 91 Coopers Farm Road
Free Admission, Co-sponsored by the Rogers Memorial Library
 
The first Jews in New York landed in 1654 in New Amsterdam. After many years, they began migrating to Long Island finding work as peddlers, farm hands and factory workers with a desire to establish their own family farms or small businesses. Tom Edmonds, Executive Director of the Southampton Historical Museum, will lead a discussion on the history of Long Island Jews and their settlement in Southampton. It is hoped that members of the audience will relate their own family histories and broaden our knowledge on this fascinating topic. Co-sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.

A HOUSE LIKE NO OTHER:

The Annie Cooper Boyd House

in Sag Harbor

 
THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 11:00 AM
The Annie Cooper Boyd House, 174 Main Street, Sag Harbor
Free admission, donations welcome, reservations are appreciated
 
Take a tour of a house like no other. The Annie Cooper Boyd House, now the Sag Harbor Historical Society headquarters, has many unique features, which the presenters will explore and explain. Annie Cooper Boyd created the charming Victorian bungalow from a typical colonial house where only two families-descendants of Southampton’s founding Fosters and Coopers-had previously lived. Among its many charms are the interior walls that  Annie painted with scenes of all the things she loved about Sag Harbor. The whaleboat shop on the property honors Annie’s father and grandfather, who built whaleboats. Presented by Jack Youngs, co-president, Sag Harbor Historical Society, Trustees Bethany Deyermond, Jean Held & Barbara Schwartz. Co-sponsored with the Sag Harbor Historical Society and Rogers Memorial Library.

Between 1942 and 1944, over 1,800 women left their homes and jobs from all corners of the United States to become the first women in U.S. history to fly military aircraft for the U.S. Army Air Forces. They volunteered as civilian pilots in an experimental program to train women to relieve male pilots for overseas combat duty. Julia Lauria-Blum will discuss the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP of WWII) from the program’s infancy to its deactivation in December 1944. Co-sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.
