Stephentown Holiday Potluck
The Stephentown Historical Society will hold its holiday potluck dinner on Monday, December 2, at 6:30 p.m., at the Stephentown Heritage Center, Garfield Road, County Route 26, in Stephentown, N.Y. Officers and board members will be elected at a brief business meeting, and military historian Larry Arnold will give an illustrated talk, ‘Arnold on Arnold: The Day Benedict Arnold Saved the American Revolution.’ It will explain how Benedict Arnold became a national hero because of one day at Saratoga that changed the course of the American Revolution. When the officer turned traitor, his fall from grace was much more dramatic because he was so famous.
Larry Arnold has been studying military history for fifty years. He followed a thirty year career at UPS with a ten year gig as park ranger at the Saratoga Battlefield National Historic Park.
For the potluck dinner, bring a dish large enough to share: either a main course, salad or dessert. Beverages and table service will be
provided. Instead of a gift exchange, a monetary collection will be taken to support the Stephentown Food Pantry. All meetings are free and open to the public. The building is handicapped-accessible. For information, call 518-733-0010.
