gardenparty08 5Robert and Marirose Bump hosted a lovely garden party and house concert Sunday, June 8, featuring Madera Vox, an ensemble of piano, oboe, bassoon, vocalist & percussion. Weather, food, music and company were all delightful. Ten people from UTS were invited, including four African students, Dr. Keisuke & Chiyo Noda and Community Relations Director Henry Christopher and family. It was a wonderful experience for all of us, but especially for the students, Leonard Tusenche (Tanzania), Kiluba Wa Banza (Congo), Frank Alapini (Benin) and Chipo Muzorewa (Zimbabwe), who could get a real taste of one aspect of American culture and social life. It took place in a lovely setting at the Bump’s home on the Hudson River in Barrytown.

Ms. Blum Bump, former Red Hook town supervisor has been a good friend to UTS. Elected in 2003, she is the first woman to be elected to this position in the history of the community which includes the Hamlet of Barrytown where she and her husband and five children are neighbors to the Unification Theological Seminary.Marirose helped UTS through the various stages with the local and state government to make Father’s Trail a NYS Greenway Trail three years ago, and then appointed Christopher and UTS Groundskeeper Howie Callies to the Red Hook Town Trails Committee.Last December, she was honored as an Ambassador for Peace at a dinner in the UTS dining room.Ms. Blum Bump has been a member of our community garden since last year. This spring, she has helped expand the garden and is teaching some of our gardeners a bio-intensive method of gardening which not only can produce more vegetables in less space than traditional gardening, but can also improve the soil each year.
