Friends of Taconic State Park Annual Meeting and BBQ Supper

Thursday, July 27th at 6pm – Friends of Taconic State Park Annual Meeting and BBQ Supper featuring local author and renowned historian David Nasaw, at the Copake Iron Works, 33 Valley View Road, Copake Falls, NY. Nasaw’s bestseller Andrew Carnegie was a New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.  David will tell us about Carnegie’s success in bringing the greatest technological advances of the 19th century to the steel and iron industry and his rise to become the wealthiest man in the world.  The opportunity to learn more about this titan of American industrial history – and others — should make for a fascinating evening.

The menu will include grilled chicken and pulled pork, cole slaw, vegetarian baked beans, and corn bread. An optional veggie burger with all the sides will also be available.
