Our former guest-blogger, the intrepid Claudia Bushman, has alerted me to the party of the year. It is (of course) the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the New York, New York stake. (What, didn’t you all know?) She writes:
A special commemorative meeting of music, talks, and film will celebrate the organization of the NY NY Stake which began in 1934, and will take place on Saturday, November 13th at 7:15 as part of the Stake Conference.
The new Stake history, produced by the NY NY History Committee, a 250 page volume, which tells the story of the Church’s early days in NYC as well as its present shape, and includes information for a lower Manhattan walking tour, will be introduced. Presently available at a prepublication price of $10. All present will learn the stake’s new song, “New York, We Love Thee,” and have a piece of birthday cake.
Books available from:
Mormon Pavilion, New York’s LDS Bookstore
560 West 180th Street, Suite 304
New York, NY 10033
fax 212 568 0147
Books are $10 plus $.87 tax if ordered in advance and picked up on Nov. 13th. An excellent gift for all your New York and former New York friends. The later price will be $19.95.
This sounds like a great event and an interesting book. I’ll try to be there, and I suspect that many other bloggernackers in the NY Metro area will try to do so as well.
And I also hadn’t been aware of the LDS bookstore on 180th — but now that I’ve heard of it, I’ll have to take a moment one of these days and check it out.
