The Edinburg Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting on Tuesday, October 18 at 7:00 p.m. Samantha Hall-Saladino, Fulton County Historian, will present a program on Famously Infamous Fulton County. Her great grandparents lived and worked in Gloversville in the mid-20th century when the glove industry was booming. Her grandfather worked in a hotel in downtown Gloversville. Tracing her personal history has been a big part of her interest in the history of the county. Samantha is also the education director at the Shaker Heritage Society in Albany. She has a background in Early American History (1620-1820), Women’s History, Education and Interpretation, Gender History, Social History, and material culture.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Edinburg Fall Festival, the volunteers and those who baked and provided the soups. Thank you to Jackie Nicols of Shelby’s Four Corner’s Diner for donating her chili. A big thank you to Joel and Denise Ferguson of J & D Percherons for providing the horse and wagon rides. The five original oil paintings donated by Andy Janik were raffled off and the winners are: Carol Nastars, Pete Tambasco, Audrey Rossi, Liz Vandenburgh and D. Rooney.
September’s business meeting was well-attended, and the pot luck supper right before it was a huge success. We all has a great time. Thank you to everyone who participated!
