Future residents, neighbors and friends of The Club gathered at the annual holiday open house.  Guests enjoyed seasonal treats, music from The Old Mill Singers of Westchester and dancing to a instrumental trio.

At this hands-on seminar, participants learned how to share their favorite photos with friends and family, whether they were taken with a traditional camera or a smartphone.  Media expert Robert Kissner, Founder of the Digital Arts Experience, also demonstrated how easy it is to make slide shows, create photo albums on your computer or use services such as Shutterfly or Snapfish.

Back by popular demand, we have Dr. Joseph M. Pastore, Jr., former University Provost, and former Dean, Lubin School of Business at Pace University.  This session features a showing of the Robert Redford Film Quiz Show, based on a real incident from the 1950's, followed by a thought-provoking discussion.  We looked at issues of class and power, truth vs. fiction, and the ethical culture of the entertainment and media industry.

One of the most enjoyable experiences at The Club is socializing with others.  We're building our community before the this unique development is built and open.  Our calendar always includes social occasions complete with fabulous food and entertainment.

This popular event included a showing of the film Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room followed by a lively discussion of this real life tale of good and evil, truth and untruth, justice and injustice led by Joseph M. Pastore, Jr., Ph.D., Professor Emeritus and former Dean, Lubin School of Business, Pace University.

The room was packed for this educational presentation given by Dr. Wei Angela Lu at The Club's Information and Design Center in Briarcliff Manor.  Dr. Liu spoke on a range of topics related to the prevention and management of joint and back pain for optimal health and well-being.

Neurologist Eliz Agopian, MD, MPH and Anjum Lone, Chief of Occupational Therapy at Phelps helped us to understand how the brain is strengthened when we use mnemonic techniques and play games.  Then Phelps' Director of Vitality Programs Ellen Woods led us through a series of web-based games to demonstrate new ways of stimulating our brains.  Staying sharp was the subject of the day.

Future residents and other guests joined us for a wonderful, hands-on workshop led by media Expert Rob Kissner, founder of Digital Arts Experience.  We covered some basics and then learned how to videochat with family members and friends using Skype and Facetime.  Attendees also experimented with "apps" to play games, generate coupons and competitive pricing info while shopping, and much more.

The Great Books Literature Series at The Club is extremely enjoyable.  We just finished reading Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" and saw the Oscar-winning film as well.  If you would like to join us as we explore and discusss not only novels, but also short stories, films, biographies, personal narratives and more, call us at The Club.  This group comprises future residents of The Club, Briarcliff Manor neighbors and other members of the community at large who just enjoy our syllabus, venue and wonderful refreshments.

Future residents and guests celebrated the season with us.  We toured the model homes decked in holiday splendor and enjoyed eggnog and festive treats as we listened to a live performance by the Old Mill Singers.  The Club at Briarcliff Manor and those who attended also supported the Ossining Food Pantry.
