Everyone feels welcome at the Nyack Center, making it a special place where a diverse population crosses paths. Nyack is fortunate to have it. In addition to being the location of our film screenings, the Nyack Center is also home to the small office of Rivetown Film Society; so I’ve seen countless people pass through for programs and activities, from young afterschool children who arrive and leave with big smiles, to teenagers who make it their second home, to seniors enjoying a holiday meal and singing together, and to people participating in all kinds of meetings and cultural events. I often wonder where these people, programs and events would go if there was no Nyack Center. For many, there is no other place, and no place better.

Nyack Center is celebrating 25 years of service to our community this year. As part of that celebration, every Tuesday for the remaining weeks of 2015, we will share a testimonial that answers the question "Why We Need Nyack Center." Past and current board members, graduates and participants in our programs, elected officials, non-profit leaders, community members and friends under the guidance of Bill Batson will share their experiences during our 25 years of service. Bill Batson is an activist, artist, writer and member of Nyack Center's Board of Directors.
