Great movie for Wel-Met memories

After a politically depressing week, we were transported to wonderful Wel-Met memories by watching "Pete Seeger: The Power of Song." The movie reminded us of the 60's and all the wonderful songs we learned and sung during the summers. Remembering that singing those songs kept us happy all winter long. I hope you enjoy the movie! It was good to loose ourselves in Pete Seeger's life and music for 93 minutes. Tina and Ed Oxer

Pete still "at it" ...

My wife and I first met in Wel-Met as teenagers when we worked in Barryville ...
'65 ish. We loved the songs we sang en mass and in harmonies that resonate to this day.

Five days after the earthquake in Haiti we saw the living Pete Seeger (91 years old now) in Ossining, sing to raise money for the relief effort. The gathering of about one hundred people sang along with Pete as he requested. We sang some of the aging anthems that echoed in WM. Woody Guthrie's 'This Land is Your Land' was one of the evenings highlights. We were so happy to have experienced him - he is an amazing man.

Yes, brought back strong WM memories and memories of a different time.

the music the mesaage

Hey Glen I recall it all -still listen to seegar when i have control of the music in the house. to remember is good to forget is sorrowful. There are many memories of unit 5 trying to play music and yet perform for the others and when I close my eyes i see the unit area , the wooden branches as benches and the long walk then to the mess hall. I see all of what was when I hear seegar and close my eyes to return even if it is for a bit.

Pete Seeger

How wonderful to hear that he is still alive & singing for causes. I saw him pull up to the Canarsie Pier in the Clearwater and have a concert about 40 years ago. One of my favorite albums is still Pete Seeger & Arlo Guthrie Togther.

I was a Barryville camper in '65, but now we are all the same age (old).
