The mayor and commissioners will be present, as well as City Historian Gerard Karabin and Assistant Historian Jane Pedler. Classic cars will be on display, and several sculptures constructed from dismantled embroidery machinery will be unveiled. Following the ceremony there will be a performance by members of West Hudson Opera featuring John Jay Hebert, tenor; Iris Karlin, soprano; and David Maiullo on piano.
One of the sculptures being unveiled is “The Embroidery Tree,” which was originally displayed at the “First Lady Luncheon” at the Pierre Hotel in NYC. It was designed by Amy Cheung with Henry and Adam Garcia of Marco Designs LLC, and painted by Aldo Sanchez “Zar.” The sculptures are graciously being donated by the artists.
Everyone in the community is invited to attend. Admission is free.
