"Henry Hudson" Spotted in Sage Park for Quadricentennial Festivities!
Sage joined the Quadricentennial festivities by hosting an "Afternoon in the Park" for about 100 preschoolers in Sage Park on the Russell Sage College campus on Tuesday, September 22 from 11 a.m. 3 p.m. "Henry Hudson" (a.k.a. English and Modern Languages Associate Professor, David Salomon, Ph.D.) greeted youngsters as they boarded a mock mini Half Moon, crafted by Creative and Performing Arts Associate Professor Michael Musial and his crew.
Youngsters had their photos taken with Henry Hudson and received a boarding pass for a journey filled with a host of activities. Clusters of children joined in as School of Education Assistant Professor Ellen Adams and her students engaged the children in Hudson-themed activities such as creating miniature boats, learning a poem and creating assorted arts and crafts projects. This event was free and open to the public. A courtesy lunch was provided.
