Morton will be closing early tonight – 6:00! The movie has been postponed!

After writing the newsletter paragraph about where to check for closing announcements, I didn’t think I’d be needing it immediately – SNOW!

We will be showing Sorry to Bother You on Wednesday, November 28th at 6:30 instead of tonight.

Stay safe.

A Message from Morton

Happy almost Thanksgiving and, gulp, winter weather!

An early heads up, we post on our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Cancellations.com, if we have to cancel an event because of inclement weather.

We have so many events this weekend so please try to find time in your busy schedule to stop by.
Just have to give a little extra shout-out to Saturday’s (click here to see the full program) all day extravaganza of new music curated by Rocco Jerry. This is free, open to the public and gives you the opportunity to see so many new musicians:

11 AM – 12:30 Shawn Lawson and The Progression Ensemble
1 – 2 Ivan Filipchyk – “Images of the Passing Time”
2:15 – 3:15 David Rothenberg’s “One Day We’ll Know Why Whales Sing”
4 – 5 Joshua Thomas: Saxophone and Electronics
5 – 5:30 Lecture by Ivan Filipchyk: “Music of Anatoly Kusyakov”
5:45-6:45 Bassless Trio “Nursery Rhymes and Their Sordid Histories”
7:30 – 8:30 Sandra Sprecher “The Power of Nature”

You have a bit longer to give us your thoughts on Morton by filling out our survey – it’s easy and only takes a few minutes!


Food Pantries      November 13, 2018

Food Security is an issue for many families in our communities year round. This holiday season consider donating your time, goods, or money to a local food pantry or food justice organization. Find something in your area and lend a helping hand if you can, or get a helping hand if you need.

Dutchess Outreach

If you’ve been to Adriance Memorial Library on a Wednesday afternoon recently, you’ll have surely seen Dutchess Outreach’s Mobile Farmstand parked outside, offering healthy, delicious produce to all. Dutchess Outreach runs several food equity programs, including the once monthly Free Farm Stand, coming up this week on November 16th. Check back on their website for location information, or to get more information on how you can help!

The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley website provides a clearinghouse location to find all kinds of information regarding food banks in New York. You can search agencies by county (Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Putnam, Ulster) to find the locations closest to you, or you can sign up to volunteer or donate through them directly.

Morton Wants to Hear from YOU!

It’s super easy to fill out our Morton SURVEY. It takes very little time and gives us lots of information to make Morton an even more welcoming place to visit and call home!
