Hasbrouck Park in New Paltz is one of those wooden wonderlands with a sand pit full of toys to share, multiple types of slides, and a system of secret passageways. It was built by community volunteers and organizations, and is used often by the Mountain Laurel Waldorf School during their school day. Classes walk over from just a couple blocks away. On Saturday, September 17th, the school is hosting a fundraiser for that sweet collaboration between school and park.

The Mountain Laurel Waldorf School began in 1983 as a kindergarten founded by parents, and has grown over the years to provide early childhood education through 8th grade in the Waldorf tradition. In 1995, they settled in their current home in New Paltz village, just a couple blocks from Hasbrouck Park and the Wallkill River, which enhances the nature-based learning that is so important at Mountain Laurel.

Music in the Field is a family-friendly outdoor concert to benefit the Mountain Laurel Waldorf School, and a percentage of the proceeds will be shared with Hasbrouck Park for playground renovations. "It's a way to say thank you and to give back to the greater community," says Patty Gandin, a coordinator for the event. The afternoon will feature a lineup of bands for families to enjoy, including the awesome Howard Fishman and the Biting Fish Brass Band. Bring lawn chairs and blankets, and a picnic to eat while enjoying the shows.

Music in the Field, a fundraiser to benefit Mountain Laurel Waldorf School and Hasbrouck Park, at the Field of Dreams Pavilion on Libertyville Road in the New Paltz Sports and Recreation complex across from the Ulster County Fairgrounds in New Paltz: Saturday, September 17th, 12-5p, $15 per person or $25 for a family ticket. There are no food vendors at this event, so bring a picnic. The event happens rain or shine! Learn more at their Facebook invite.
