Hello Everyone interested in Lindley History ,
The Lindley- Presho Historical Society will come out of hibernation on Wednesday March 11,2015 7 P.M at the Middletown (Addison ) Museum at 41 Main Street---Addison,N.Y.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
The guest speaker will be Lindley’s own native son –Durland Weale. Durland who grew up in Lindley is a member of the LPHS. He has donated several items to the Lindley Historian files and has presented several interesting programs at our meetings. As one of our few remaining “youngsters of his generation” , he has been very helpful in adding to the Lindley History files.
The topic of his program on the 11th will the Depression Years in Addison. (*the Great depression occurred after the collapse of the stock market on October 29th,1929 and was known as” Black Tuesday “. It affected the United States and the World Economy.) (*Ref.announcement in Addison Post February 28, 2015.)
If you haven’t visited the Middletown Museum( in Addison )and enjoyed their exhibits, this will be a great opportunity to see it and to hear Durland’s memories of Depression Days. Without a doubt , the effects in Addison were,also, felt by Lindley residents.
Let’s surprise Durland and have a good representation from Lindley –where he lived during the Depression years.( I won’t give his age..)
Think warm weather --
