On Saturday, February 23rd, Brother Arnold Hadd – one of the Shakers living in the community at Sabbathday Lake, Maine – presented a talk about Mother Ann Lee via Google Hangout. About fifty people showed up at Siena College for the lecture, presented in honor of Mother Ann’s birthday. It was a wonderful and lively discussion with great questions from the audience. The entire talk and Q&A session was recorded, but because of a few technical glitches, the video will need to be edited. It will be posted as soon as possible on our website.
The staff at SHS would like to extend their gratitude to Brother Arnold for taking time out of his busy day to speak. We would also like to give a big thank you to Scott Lawyer and the Siena College IT team, without whom this program would not have been possible. We look forward to more collaboration between the Sabbathday Lake community and the Shaker museums.
