April 2022 Newsletter

 

Would you like to understand how local government - town, county, state - impacts our lives?  Would you like to learn basic things like what’s the difference between a state assemblyman and a senator?; what does a county legislature do?; how does the board of elections function?; and what is a comptroller anyway?

To help answer these basic questions, Rob Saffer, along with volunteers from Woodstock, created Civics Teach-In 2022. They invited nearly every elected official, Republicans and Democrats, from the town of Woodstock, Ulster County, NY State, and the Federal government to attend. Since it is a first-time pilot project, expectations were low and they weren’t sure if they’d even respond. Nearly everyone did because elected leaders know how important teaching civics and engaging citizens is to our fragile democracy.

Civics Teach-In 2022 will take place over six consecutive Thursday evenings at the Woodstock Community Center beginning March 31. It’s nonpartisan - there will be no politicking! - And anyone can attend free of charge. The events will be recorded for YouTube so anyone, including students, can watch.

 

The sliding gallery contains a press announcement with more details and a program schedule.   We hope to see you there!

 

 

 


 

 


 

The mission of the Rip Van Winkle Council is to provide an effective program for boys and girls, as well as young men and women, to help them develop desirable qualities of character and leadership, participating citizenship, personal fitness, good family values, and respect for the environment, and to prepare them to make ethical choices over their lifetime in achieving their full potential.

Further, it is the mission of the Rip Van Winkle Council to make the Scouting program available to all eligible youth in Ulster and Greene Counties. The council will develop and maintain the physical and financial resources to support an effective Scouting program in its territory and support the chartered organizations that use Scouting.
