Plan on bringing a light sweater as the auditorium we are spending much of the day in is air-conditioned and can get chilly!
Here you will get to meet and hear from content experts from program partners The Center for Arts Education and Historic Hudson Valley as well as become familiarized with the lesson plans with our curriculum developer.
After touring our 18th century historic site, you will break for lunch (provided).
We welcome you to join us at the end of the workshop for an optional wine and cheese reception (outdoor, weather permitting) until 5:00 p.m.
Taking the train instead? Historic Hudson Valley staff will be picking up train commuters at the Metro-North Station in nearby Tarrytown and bringing them to Philipsburg Manor.
**If you need a ride from the station, you must take the Hudson Line East train departing from Grand Central at 7:38 a.m. and arriving at Tarrytown at 8:17 a.m. This is a PEAK express train, 39 minutes.** For more schedule info and fares, visit MTA.info here.
We will return guests to the train station for either a 4:01 departure (arriving at GCT at 4:41 p.m. express OFF-PEAK) or a 5:35 p.m. departure (arriving at GCT at 6:15 p.m. express OFF-PEAK) depending on your plans to attend the reception or not.
Before you come: **Please answer the following three questions in email by Wed., July 30**
Do you need a ride from the Tarrytown Train Station?
Lunch choice (sandwich): Roast Beef, Turkey, or Veggie? Any other dietary restrictions we should know about?
Will you attend the wine/cheese reception?
