1981 Dryden flood program tonight

Sorry for the late notice, but if you can make it, this should be great:

On October 19, 2011 at 7 pm, Dryden Historical Society will present a program about "The 1981 Flood: 30 Years Ago"

Mike Lane was mayor of Dryden at the time of the 1981 Flood and will be the speaker. He will tell about the flood that devastated the area thirty years ago in 1981.

The vast Virgil Creek Watershed dam in the town of Dryden was constructed as a result of the flooding, and proved effective this past month in moderating the damage to local areas. We invite everyone with an interest in Dryden history and in the the recent high water and flooding from the many streams and surrounding high hills to attend.

We invite all to bring stories and photographs about the great 1981 Flood to share. Programs are recorded and the information then becomes part of the historical collection and accessible to the public.

The program will be held at the Dryden Village Hall at the corner of South and George Streets, Dryden.

Program begins at 7pm, the doors open at 6:30 pm. Please come early to visit and look at displays.

There is elevator access and plenty of parking.

Dryden Historical Society programs are FREE and OPEN TO ALL.
