TSRE 2013 / SPIN THIS! #50’s#60’s#70’s

We visited the local record store, Ignition Music, for an afternoon with Steve Martin and Joel Jimenez. They took us on a listening journey, beginning with the roots of rock and roll (Buddy Holly, Little Richard) and ending with a comparison of the first track of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon in Mp3, cd, and vinyl formats (of course the record sounded the best!).

TSRE 2013 / COOL CATS & HIP BEATS #50’s

With the help of local writers, Sara Wakefield and Tristan Beachy-King, we learned about the Beat Movement, as well as had a chance to write our own “beat” poems and share them with the group. It was so much fun!

TSRE 2013: POP! Goes the Soda Shop #50s

The first event of this year’s TSRE, 50 Years of Summer, was terrific! We got to learn about the history of Goshen’s iconic South Side Soda Shop from owner, Nick Boyd, as well as make our own old-fashioned sodas. We even got to eat their delicious hand-made french fries!
