"Restoring and Preserving Our State's Lost and Abandoned Burial Sites"

Jamey Greenough is the founder and executive director of the N.Y. State Old Cemetery Conservancy.  Mr. Greenough has documented and restored many family cemeteries in both New York State and Vermont.  The projects he has restored are remote, usually in rugged areas that nature has taken back.  Mr. Greenough will explain the issues and techniques used to bring in supplies to restore these old family cemeteries.  At one site he made an assessment of what was needed to restore the cemetery, including the wildlife living there, such as a den of bobcat, snakes and other creatures.

JULY 20 at 7:00 p.m.:
      "The Cost of Healing - Medical Treatment in the 18th Century"
Like today, medical treatment could be very expensive.  Joe Craig looks at several medical cases from the 1700's to discover just how costly medicine could be.
     Joe is a retired Park Ranger who had 40 years with the National Park Service where he developed an interest in 18th century medicine.  It enabled him to have a better understanding of how people perceived their world in the past.

AUGUST 17 - 7:00 p.m.
Rev. Paul Bartholomew will present a program of historical interest.  More details to follow.
