Resident Harry Schmidt Presentation
Who knew that at the age of 13 Harry Schmidt saved the life of a Navy pilot who ditched his fighter in the Hudson River near their boat club? Graduating from college in 1950 just as the Korean War broke out he went into USAF pilot training. A year later he was a fighter pilot on Okinawa. Returning to the US after 2 years he was stationed at Otis AFB, and was entered into a USAF-wide competition looking for “the beat fighter pilot in the USAF”, and won that competition. He was hired by Pratt & Whitney to be their engineering test pilot at Edwards AFB testing the new generation of supersonic fighters, the most important of which was the F-101 Voodoo. The 101 was having major difficulties and no USAF pilot was able to test and resolve the problem. Except Harry. Be sure to join us to hear “the rest of the story”.

Broadway HD Screening "Sunday in the Park with George"
This Stephen Sondheim 1984 hit musical starring Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin follows painter Georges Seurat in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” Winner of numerous awards and 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Women's Circle Breakfast
Our speaker for Women’s Circle Break-fast is Southgate resident, John McClymer. The title of his presentation is “Frances Perkins and the New Deal.” Frances Perkins, the first fe-male cabinet secretary and, in the words of a recent biographer, “the woman behind the New Deal,” instead claimed that the real start of the New Deal was March 25, 1911, the date of the Triangle Shirtwaist fire in which 146 garment workers died. We will explore the reasons Perkins traced the New Deal back to the fire and her very important role as Secretary of Labor during the Roosevelt Administration. John McClymer taught American History at Assumption for 48 years and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards.
Out to Lunch—Old Mill Restaurant
Originally a saw mill where logs were processed for the new homes of the neighborhood, the Old Mill and its whirling saw sang a song of progress and industry through five generations of ownership in the same family before its wheels were stilled. Reimagined into a country restaurant, today, the Old Mill is noted for tempting foods served in a setting of rare charm. Previous registration required.
We feel fortunate to live in a community where the Residents are friendly and the staff greets us by name.
