Tobe Carey, local independent film producer and director, hosts a screening of two of his documentaries celebrating the Mid-Hudson Valley. Poetry of a Watershed Stream celebrates one stream that feeds into the Ashokan Reservoir of the Catskill Mountains and eventually joins the Hudson River. The film illustrates the beauty of the stream and emphasizes the need to keep our streams clean.  (6 minutes)  Sweet Violets tells the surprising story of the Violet Capital of the World - Rhinebeck, New York.  In the Gilded Age and beyond, high fashion decreed that violets were the flower of choice for Valentine's Day, Easter, and a fragrant corsage. At the peak of production, Rhinebeck growers shipped millions of sweet violets (viola odorata) to New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and beyond. (40 minutes)
