DCHS is grateful for the generous support of White's Hudson River Marina, the January sponsor of our Virtual Event Space. Such funding makes our talks and events possible, and available at no charge to the viewer. Such funding allows us to host just live events with the opportunity for questions and discussion, and supports our growing library of archived presentations available at your convenience. Please thank and support those businesses like White's Hudson River Marina that enable our work in the preservation and sharing of our local history.
