On what turned out to be the first stunningly sun-soaked day of spring, the Chronogram Conversations series welcomed guests and a rousing panel to the Roundhouse at Beacon. Inside the Gallery event space—overlooking the waterfalls and creek opposite the hotel's restaurant—120 attendees sipped Hudson Valley Brewery beer and tastes of Denning's Point Distillery provided by the Beacon-based whiskey, vodka, and gin maker. The Roundhouse's acclaimed executive chef Terrance Brennan plated small bites.

As you've likely read in previous issues of Chronogram, our (new in 2017) salon-style series brings together community leaders (thank you Mayor Randy Casale for attending and joining the conversation!) and influencers with creative types to discuss pertinent issues. We begin the chat with a panel of influencers and then opened the floor to attendees to participate with comments and questions.

The Beacon Conversation was moderated by Luminary Media's Director of Business Development & Strategy, Julian Lesser. The panel included Beaconites Scott Tillitt (Beahive, Re-Think Local), Ava Bynum (Hudson Valley Seed and Showing Up For Racial Justice, Beacon), Kelly Ellenwood (artist, president of Beacon Arts Community Association) and Daniel Aubry (artist, realtor). The talk wound through subjects like real estate development, multiracial inclusion in municipal decision making, support for the art and maker communities, and more.
