The Vassar Night Owls to sing at the Morris Farm
The Vassar Night Owls is Vassar’s oldest a capella group, as well as one of the oldest female a capella groups in the country. Sponsored by Ed and Lydia Kitfield, they have generously donated their time to come and sing at the Morris Farm on Sunday, March 18 at 2 p.m.
According to legend, the Night Owls were born during the polio epidemic of 1942, when the entire student community was quarantined. No one was allowed to leave her dorm except to attend classes. Socials were cancelled, tea in the Rose Parlor was abandoned – Vassar traditions were foregone. In the midst of all this turmoil, 16 intrepid young women threw caution to the wind. Dressed in black, they broke out of their dorms and met secretly in the basement of the library where they sang late into the night.
There will be a cookie bar and coffee and tea served. Cost is by donation. Morris Farm is located at 156 Gardiner Road in Wiscasset. For more information, call Angela at 882-4080 or email email@example.com
