Spencertown Academy Arts Center Celebrates Its 27th Revels

Amy Krzanik reports from Spencertown. The crowd cheered enthusiastically as Nick Van Alstine, the Spencertown Academy Society board president, took the stage to welcome guests to the 27th annual Spencertown Revels. He thanked the Revels committee, board members, dinner hosts and donors for the wonderful turnout. Indeed, the single-digit temperatures didn’t stop supporters from attending the popular annual event, which began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the Academy Arts Center and were followed by intimate dinners at eight area homes. Proceeds go to fund a variety of free and low-cost community arts events, including the popular Garden Market on the Green in the summertime and the Festival of Books each Labor Day weekend. Pictured above, Board President Nick Van Alstine and Board Treasurer Jo-Anne Bilotti.
