Around the Town with Lou - October 22, 2010

Archbishop Timothy Dolan attended the opening of the story of America’s Nuns at Ellis Island and was full of praise. The history of America’s Religious Sisters, called the Women of the Spirit, was organized by our daughter, Sister Annmarie, and four other sisters. They helped raise the $4 million needed and wrote the stories and the graphics. It started in Cincinnati’s Museum and four months later moved to Dallas and then the Smithsonian in Washington, then to Cleveland and now to Ellis Island. The traveling exhibit has attracted almost 400,000 visitors to date. It stays about four months in each location. It will open early next year in Iowa and then hopefully to the west coast.

With this bitter election battle of who is going to be the next governor of New York, makes us realize we have had some distinguished men serve in the past. Our first governor was George Clinton, no relation of Bill and Hillary, and we have had Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Al Smith, Herbert Lehman, Nelson Rockefeller and Tom Dewey to name a few.
