News and Events
Covid Response – We have discussed how to proceed for the planned 2020 Summer season. The majority of those consulted were strongly in favor of cancelling the programs over concern for the possible effects of the virus and a strong desire not to be the locus of any local outbreak. So, with concern for our community health, FHHL is cancelling the formal Summer programs. Still, we want to keep momentum to the extent that we can. Stay tuned, as this could change if New York continues to push the number of cases downward.

In both cases America watched disease spread from country to country and wondered when, and for some, if, it would reach our shores. When it did, it appeared first in Whitehall, NY, to an America that was unprepared to cope with a virulent and unfamiliar disease.
