Having attended the last two Sinterklaas celebrations (and having a good time), I was curious about the history of the event, how it is all put together, and what we can look forward to this year. Ms. Fleming was kind enough to explain many aspects of the festival. Her enthusiasm and passion for the community of Rhinebeck shine through the Sinterklaas celebration she has tirelessly helped
Iva Lawrence’s mind is as tidy and organized as the lovely home she and her late husband, Vincent, built. About to celebrate her 97th birthday, Iva speaks with authority about her wonderful neighbors and family.
