The 7th Annual Roe Jan Ramble Bike Tour is Saturday, September 21 through the sponsor towns of Ancram, Copake and Hillsdale. This community event is a non-competitive ride, and perfect for both the casual as well as committed cyclist. Whether you enjoy a simple ride with your family, or you are an experienced dedicated cyclist, the Ramble offers something for everyone.

Screen Shot 2019-09-16 at 7.41.49 PMThis year there are six routes to choose from (10, 18, 25, 35, 50 miles and the new – 100km or 62.5 miles) on quiet country roads in some of the most beautiful scenery of the Hudson Valley & Taconic foothills you’ve ever seen.

The Cat Rescuers Kit-Tea Party at Ancram Opera House, Apr 27

1253843-250The Cat Rescuers, a feature documentary by award winning filmmakers Rob Fruchtman (Sister Helen) and Steven Lawrence (Sarabah), will be shown at the Ancram Opera House this Saturday (April 27th) as part of a spring fundraiser for local cat rescues – Collaborative Cats and Cat Wranglers of Claverack.

The documentary had its world premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival where it won the Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless Award, given each year to a film that inspires audiences to respect the dignity and rights of all living beings and encourages dialogue about how we treat and view animals as a community.

The Cat Rescuers follows Sassee, Claire, Tara and Stu night and day as they hit the streets, backyards and alleys of Brooklyn to save feline lives. As the film unfolds, it shows the extraordinary skill, resilience and humor these passionate urban heroes bring to this challenging work, and how it has changed their lives. Against great odds, they are making a difference.

The Cat Rescuers film will be followed by the Kit-Tea party featuring refreshments by Harney Tea and delicious sweets by local volunteers. Kittens and cats will be available for viewing and adoption. Collaborative Cats annual Spring Raffle winners will be chosen.

Saturday, April 27th, 2019 / 2pm
