February 13, 2012 Report
Plans for the statue dedication are proceeding on schedule.
Sharon BuMann, the sculptor, has informed us of “patina” problems. She will remedy that. It is a foundry issue.
The first meeting of the Historical Society will be Sat. February 18th , 10 am at the Town Hall. Topic of discussion is Nathaniel Laird, the oldest person to have lived in Oswego Town. He died in 1894 at age 111. His great-grandson is Norman Simmons of Fruit Valley.
A brochure listing the 2012 events for the Society will be distributed.
Dr. Walker’s second book, UNMASKED, is very rare. Just recently, three copies have appeared on a book site. I did secure one for my collection and eventually give that to our Archives here.
I have been invited by the 150th. Anniversary committee of St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in Oswego to share at the three Masses sometime in May about Dr. Walker and the Civil War.
