Celebrating A Legend - Pete Seeger's 102nd Birthday

Posted by: Chad Cianfrani on Monday, May 3, 2021 at 12:00:00 am

Today we remember our friend from down the road on his 102nd birthday - Pete Seeger. Like many in the Hudson Valley, the Oakwood community was blessed to know Pete over many decades. More than his music, which is everlasting, his actions and his principles challenged and engaged us. Pete connected with our students and faculty for over half a century, occasionally coming to campus for a quiet and quick song or two (sometimes when 'others' would not allow him to play...)

Happy Birthday Pete. We continue to hold you in the Light and try our best to continue this work and shape a sustainable and peaceful future.
