*About the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance Lecture:
Sol Moglen, founder and Chairman of the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance, presents a touching lecture paying tribute to 9/11 first responders. An avid fan of baseball, Sol Moglen himself would tell you the Ebbets Field Wall of Remembrance Foundation all started because of the love for the game. Originally a place to remember and celebrate the Dodgers World Series victory of 1955, the field now has a very different purpose. After the World Trade Center attack on September 11, nothing seems as important as expressing the respect, gratitude and the love Brooklyn had for the courageous sons and daughters of New York City who died that day. Sol began a years-long journey to make sure that everyone understood the power and magnificence of that sacrifice, and with Pater Karsten and the sculptor Jamie Lester, and a slew of friends and volunteers, that vision was realized.
Each month, the Crane’s Mill activities calendar is filled with fun programs, exercise, trips, outings, classes, discussion groups, live entertainment, and so much more!
Today, after Happy Hour in the Cherry Blossom Lounge and a restaurant-style dinner in the Candleberry Dining Room, residents will enjoy another fantastic live program featuring resident favorites The Belle Tones!
The Belle Tones are a female trio featuring “popular music from the
1920s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, Plenty of Patriotic Tunes,
Broadway, Jazz, and Holiday Music.”
They’re fun, funny, charming, and always entertaining…to say our residents are excited to have them back is an understatement!
