From the Auction Committee
Thank you to our generous cooks, bakers, mice makers, drivers, and other auction item donors. And thanks to the wonderful folks who have purchased items from our Holiday Flash Sale.
We have raised over $1,000 and haven’t even had our auction yet!
You still have until December 3 if you haven’t ordered your holiday treats yet! And on December 4 we are having our first committee planning meeting. It’s not just Barb & Lisa anymore! And we have room for more! Please let us know you would like to help with this year’s auction and put December 4 on your calendar, after the service. Join us for some fun!
Our auction event will be online on February 11, 2023. Don’t miss it!

First Sundays of each month (except when it falls on a Holiday: then it will be a week later) – 4pm
Music at the Ridge – Monthly Acoustic Music Concert Dec. 4, 4 – 6pm
Featuring: Geoff Kaufman
Best known to a lot of people for his 35 years of singing and organizing maritime music at Mystic Seaport Museum in CT, Geoff has always maintained an active touring schedule featuring music from such formative influences as singers and songwriters from the “folk scare” of the 60s (Tom Paxton, Joan Baez, Steve Gillette…), songs collected in the Catskill Mountains where he grew up and his time as a Sloopsinger with the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and Pete Seeger.
Since his retirement from Mystic in June of ’19, Geoff has turned greater attention to music that speaks to issues of social justice, the climate crisis and our need to find common ground, but also wants to keep singing songs that caught his ear over the years for their pure grace and beauty. Mostly, Geoff just loves to sing whether a cappella or accompanied by guitar, concertina or bones.
Geoff has eight albums available on his website at www.geoffkaufman.com, seven of his music and one he produced with a wonderful cast of performers including Pete Seeger, Ronnie Gilbert, Jay Ungar & Molly Mason and Eric Weissberg of folk songs collected at Camp Woodland in the Catskills.
