The next meeting will be held at the museum tonight (August 3, 2017) at 7:00 PM.  Our guest speaker will be Earl Dorman.  Mr. Dorman is a life long resident of the Five Corners/East Elba area.  Mr. Dorman will share some memories and answer questions.  The meeting is open to members & non-members.


Note – Our vice-president, Lewis Esten,  had a heart attack recently.  He is now home and recovering nicely.  Our best wishes to him.


On Sunday last, our museum received a visit from Margaret Tyrrell of Grand Island, N.Y..  Mrs. Tyrrell is a daughter of Emma Evans Hall, who was a student of Pat Burr and taught with Pat at ECS for a short period of time.  They became close friends and remained in touch.  Pat had given Mrs. Hall a 30 by 40 painting of sunflowers and Mrs. Tyrrell wished to donate that painting to our museum in her mother’s memory.


On Monday, Ann Gavenda & Earl Roth  visited with Mrs. Holly Dill of Florida.  Mrs. Dill is a grand-daughter of Harry Bonney.  Mr. Bonney was in partnership with Roy Porter in the produce business.  Mr. & Mrs. Bonney resided at 20 Chapel Street with their three daughters (Jane, Elizabeth & Suzanne).  Mrs. Dill was in the area attending memorial services for her aunt and wanted to know more about Elba and her family.
