Our next General Meeting will be held at 7:30pm on Tuesday April 16th at the American Legion Hall in Absecon, - 560 New Jersey Ave, Absecon, NJ 08201 for your GPS. Rich O’Brien and Bill Milles will present a screening of the one-hour documentary “Irish Catskills: Dancing at the Crossroads”. This fascinating film explores the factors that led to the Catskills’ boom from a successful labor union deal and a flood of Irish immigration in the 1950s and bust prompted by air conditioning, cheap air fares, and cultural assimilation in later decades. Using archival photos, home movies, private audio recordings, contemporary videography, and dozens of interviews, it traces the history and the legacy of Irish-Americana in the Catskills. Come and enjoy! Bring a friend and don’t forget to also bring your St Nicholas Food Bank donation. There will be a short business meeting afterward.
