After the Finish Line: Saving America’s Horses
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium
Complete Event Details
Contact: Valarie Waldin, (518) 629-7319, v.waldin@hvcc.edu

A panel discussion with Dr. Lester Friedlander, DVM, former chief inspector for the US Department of Agriculture; Loni Stewart of the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition, documentary filmmaker Sharon Boeckle and Steve Caporizzo of WTEN.

The discussion will center on horse slaughter, a practice once legal in the United States and which continues to be debated as a legal option in the United States. Currently, the U.S. exports live horses to Canada and Mexico, where slaughter and human consumption are legal. America’s horses are then transported to Japan for human consumption, as well. Horses from all backgrounds, including thoroughbred race horses, are subject to this ending.

The program is sponsored by the HVCC Animal Outreach Club and the New York State Humane Association. The event is free and open to the public.

Local vs. Organic Food? How CSAs Help Solve the Puzzle
12:00 pm – 12:50 pm
Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium
Complete Event Details
Contact: Voices: A Library Lecture Series, (518) 629-7336, Web page

There is a growing movement among consumers to shop for food in places other than the grocery store, including farmers’ markets, food co-ops and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture). The proliferation of misleading product labels, green washing and other marketing ploys creates confusion for people looking for the best nutritional foods. Having operated a CSA farm for nearly 10 years, Justine Denison, farmer and co-owner of Denison Farm in Schaghticoke, addresses the CSA model, farmers’ markets and the question of local versus organic with the goal of raising awareness on how to make healthy food choices and knowing what questions one should ask when selecting what to eat.
