A presentation: Shoreham and Spirituality
with Peter Maniscalco
Peter Maniscalco is an environmental educator, with profound thoughts on the Shoreham anti-nuclear movement, and what it means to be an activist – past, present, and future.

Andy Greenhouse
Susan Blake described Andy as “A downhome, heady with heart folksinger” and a “PeaceSmiths Coffeehouse mainstay who carries on and advances the folk process.” Andy carries on the annual tradition of the season finale, sing-a-long and folk set, which used to be performed and planned by Lisa Fishbein and Susan June Blake.
