The "Old School" is turning 150 years old: 1870-2020
Our big 150th Birthday Party for the Old School (as it was called) planned for May 9, along with our annual Plant Sale, is postponed for a future date.
The Old School served the children of Palisades, grades K-8, for 100 years. Did you or a family member go to school there? Do you have photos? Memories or stories to tell?
Please e-mail us at: Help us document this period of our Palisades history!

...and as the Old School building turns 150,
The Palisades Community Center becomes 50 years old, 1970-2020
In 1970, the South Orangetown Central School District sold the school house to the Palisades community for $1. Its purpose was to provide “social, cultural and recreational facilities to the members of the community.” Since then it has been managed and cared for entirely by generations of countless dedicated volunteers and non-paid board members. We are grateful for all the volunteers who have helped at our events and lent-a-hand in our restoration projects.

Our April Earth Day clean-up was cancelled but every Day is Earth Day!
Feel free to pick up litter as you take your walks.
Contact Carol Knudson for clean-up area suggestions: Carol gets the Gold Star Beautiful Planet award for finding a discarded gas grill and an office water cooler hidden from view on RT 9W on the hill up to Lamont. She and her husband John were unable to get it into their vehicle, so she wheeled it down the long hill to Closter Road! BRAVO!
