On April 8, 2021, Mayor Mike Spano acknowledged Ruth Weiner’s many contributions with a 2021 Community Service Award during a virtual ceremony.
The HRM honored the memory of longtime Docent Marilyn Bender, who passed away in January, by dedicating a late nineteenth-century painting by John Douglas, View of the Hudson Highlands with Woman Painting, in her honor.
Despite recent challenges, the HRM Docents have gone above and beyond, pivoting enthusiastically to the virtual realm and finding ways to bolster the camaraderie and community that make them such an integral part of the Hudson River Museum.
The Docents recently gathered together at the HRM to celebrate the holidays, with an environmentally friendly twist. Longtime Docent Maria Miehle says, “This is just one small way to do our part to keep our city, and river, a bit cleaner.”
