Former Mount Varna stirs

Poster about 16-unit development planned for 5 Freese Road.

It's not nearly as nice as the last proposal, but this may be as much as is possible on that awful fill site.

Site Plan review is at 7:00pm, Dryden Town Hall, this Thursday, March 27th. (I can't make it because it's Sungiva's sixth birthday.)

History Under Foot

Wednesday - April 9th - 7PM - Dryden Village Hall (corner of George and South streets)

It all began when David Waterman's dog started digging up patent medicine bottles in the yard. Suddenly, he noticed there were artifacts all over and realized, with the help of the Dryden Town Historical Society, he could discover their origins. But Waterman didn't stop there. He traced the time line of his property - within the area designated as Lot 59 on the New Military Tract - back to the Revolutionary War soldier who was originally granted ownership of the property and the grandson who inherited it.

Join the Dryden Town Historical Society on Wednesday, April 9th, beginning at 7 PM in the Dryden Village Hall (at the corner of George and South Streets) to watch a PowerPoint presentation on Waterman's research and learn how to go about digging up the history of your own property .

The doors will open at 6:30 PM to view dispiays and, as always, this event is free and open to all with donations gratefully accepted.
