Delaware County Historical Association Honors Six
The annual meeting of the Delaware County Historical Association is this Sunday. A pot luck luncheon buffet at 1:00pm sets the scene for the gathering of members and guests in the large gallery at DCHA. The luncheon will be followed by the presentation of DCHA’s annual Awards of Merit to those individuals who have volunteered their time and skills to preserve and/or present the history of Delaware County. The recipients this year are: Graydon Ballard, an important member and volunteer for the Sidney Historical Society for several years, serving as its curator for the past decade. Ken and Vanessa Schermerhorn, members of the Delaware County Historical Association for many years and – more importantly – active volunteers for the last decade. And the Bovina “School Marms,” three women associated with the Bovina Historical Society's School Day Camp. A short business meeting will follow the Awards of Merit presentation. The general public is also invited at 2:45pm to hear local radio personality and author, Chuck D’Imperio, give a presentation based on his book, “Unknown Museums of Upstate NY.” There is no charge to attend any portion of the meeting and the general public is invited to attend.
