  • February 9: Local artist and performer Clifford Oliver Mealy recreates the persona of Solomon Northup, a free African-American New Yorker kidnapped into slavery before the Civil War, whose story is also a 2013 Academy Award-winning motion picture.
  • March 8: Averill Park? The Averill family and its descendants lived in Sand Lake from its earliest days. Was it named after the family? Where did Park come from? The answer may be found by looking at the Averill family's history in the Sand Lake area. Who were they? What did they do? Joan Fuess will present Jennie Averill and reflect on the Averills and their influence on Sand Lake. Learn about Moscow, the Civil War horse, the Averill Park Improvement, the Troy and New England Railway, Averill Park Hotel, Interlachen Park, Sunset Lodge, Crist Crape's Central Hotel and last but not least, the family tie to Charles Nalle, the runaway slave.
