Carole Ash, Director of the Palisades Interstate Parks Commission spoke on the early years of the PIPC and led us into present day goals for the Commission.

1n 1900, the New Jersey Woman’s Federation resented cliff blasting in the Palisades and succeeded in halting the blasting. Support from Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt and J.P. Morgan assured that the Palisades would suffer no more trauma from blasting or mining. Present day goals are to convert the parks west of the Hudson. The Fort Montgomery Battle site is now in operation and the new visitor’s center opens on October 7th of this year. The Bear Mountain Inn is also undergoing major renovations, re-opening later this year.

Great program!

Boat RideSunday August 27 Gus ‘Skipper’ Fishburne again said that the annual boat ride would occur on 8/27. So:

“If all you swabs man the deck,

This will be a great trip, by heck!”


Phil Brillante’s weekly safety tip from last week came in mighty handy with temperatures topping 100 degrees. More of this in store so take precautions. Check on elderly persons to insure that their quarters are not overheated. Keep out of the sun and Prevent dehydration. (Again, message received from Phil by E.S.P.) (Ask the Wizard!)
