Fall Photo Fest 2015
The Bleecker Town Hall was decked out with board after board filled with old photo of our town which were enjoyed by several members who attended. Attendance of general public and sharing and copying of new photos was disappointing however.
Board displays were prepared by Eliza Darling, past president and Eleanor Brooks, Town Historian and books and albums published by Lorraine Bleyl were available and pursued in earnest.
Thanks to those who worked to present the displays and cover the day and to those who attended.
FALL PHOTO FEST Sept. 27 12 noon to 4 pm

HISTORIC MARKER DEDICATED
The Bleecker Historical Society is pleased to announce that the history marker funded through the William G. Pomeroy Historic Roadside Marker Program was dedicated at our recent Ice Cream Social held on August 1st. The Pomeroy Foundation funds markers across New York State for sites of historical significance within the time frame 1740-1914. Our marker commemorates Bleecker's District No. 3 School, located on Lily Lake Road. Built in 1873, the building now houses The Old School Museum, which last year celebrated the 140th anniversary of the structure. Two earlier school houses at that location dated back to the early 1800's, the earliest being a log building.
ICE CREAM SOCIAL
The Society would like to express its gratitude to all those who again helped make our 2015 Ice Cream Social a success. The bake sale as always was rich with donated treats, from pies, cookies, cupcakes and fudge thanks to our hardworking and talented Bleecker bakers. Thanks also to the many members who worked diligently to sell tickets and gather donations for the bakeless bake sale. As ever, we are grateful to Stewart's for donating the ice cream and fixings. This event is our major fundraiser each year and we appreciate the support you give us.
