Save the Date - October 6-8
This fall we are hosting the U.S. Servas National Conference from October 6th-8th at Frost Valley YMCA Camp in Claryville, NY, about 2 ½ hours northwest of NYC. This gorgeous 5,000-acre facility is located on the ancestral homeland of the Munsee Lenape people. Since this weekend precedes Indigenous Peoples Day, we have reached out to the Lenape and hope to have them participate.
This year’s conference will focus on peace … with our planet, our world of nations, our country, our community, our tribe, and most of all—ourselves. We are planning a festive, informative, and rewarding event with presentations, hands-on workshops, break-out sessions of special interest, and music and social events in the evenings. Up to three US Servas members will be recognized for their noteworthy efforts to promote peace. They will be presented with our first-ever, US Servas Peace Awards (see article).
Make it a Vacation

Visit wineries, hike the incredible Watkins Glenn Gorge, visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown or the Corning Glass Museum. Early October in the Catskills is spectacular with pleasant temperatures and brilliant fall foliage near its peak. Look for more details about the conference in upcoming issues. We look forward to seeing you there.
