Posted on 28 January 2017 by Editor

Kinderland at March

Tuxedo, NY resident Sue Scher, originally from Brooklyn, attended the Women’s March in NYC with old friends from her Camp Kinderland days, a camp in Tolland, MA founded in 1923 by Jewish activists as a retreat for children from the tenements of NYC.

The first thing people saw upon arriving in the city were others streaming in from subway stops and buses, and plenty of colorful signs on display.

The day in the city turned out to be one for the history books, as similar mass marches of men and women took place across the country. Continue Reading
