About The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition
The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining cultural arts within the Town of Southeast and its surrounding region. TOSCAC was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in August 2010 with the purpose, as detailed in the incorporation papers, “… to promote and raise funds for the development and effective management of affordable, accessible performance space that will provide citizens of the Town of Southeast opportunities to participate in and appreciate cultural arts, including lectures, theater, dance, film, music, visual arts, and inclusive community events.”
Our current focus is the renovation of the Southeast Old Town Hall, a historic landmark within the Village of Brewster and a perfect venue to serve as a cultural hub. The Old Town Hall has been described as a “Jewel in the Center of Brewster” and its renovation will help foster the revitalization of downtown Brewster.
About Putnam County PFC Dwyer Vet 2 Vet Program
On June 28, 2008, Private First Class Joseph P. Dwyer, a combat medic and a veteran of the Iraq War died as a result of an inhaled sedative, which he used to self-medicate his diagnosis of PTSD and depression. Although the Veterans Administration and friends and family tried to help treat his PTSD, Dwyer could not be saved from his “inner demons” and he lost the valiant fight.
Lobbying with veterans groups and with acquired input from friends and family of Joseph then-New York State Senator and veteran Lee M. Zeldin (NY R-Third District) help to introduce legislation creating grants and funding for the Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Outreach Program of New York.
The first four counties in New York, were Rensselaer, Jefferson, Suffolk, and Saratoga in 2012. In 2013, seven additional counties were added including Putnam, Westchester, Nassau, Erie, Onondaga, Orange, and Rockland, and four more were added in 2014, then one more was added in 2015 bringing the total to 16 counties in New York as of this date. Today, the Putnam County program is run by Iraq war veteran John Bourges, who started working as a coordinator and peer-to-peer ambassador.
Open to any Putnam County veteran of any era, Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Outreach Program of Putnam County connects veterans who have experienced and overcome post-service social and emotional challenges including PTSD, TBI, substance abuse, and other illnesses. It is our goal with this program to utilize that unique relationship from one vet to another to help foster a relationship and direct the veteran to any services they may need.
