Half-Shire hosted Pulaski’s Class of 1960 for a breakfast on Sunday June 27th. Four members of the class had attended the Richland school and found the visit quite interesting. The Class donated an oversized photo of themselves on their class trip, as well as a booklet of biographies.

Over reunion weekend we assisted many Pulaski and Sandy Creek Alumni with research. We were very pleased to visit with Alice Carnright formally of Sandy Creek who stopped by on Saturday. Alice has been an active member of the DAR for many years, and is quite knowledgeable on Revolutionary War research.

As this article goes to press the Oswego County Fair should be in full swing. As we write we have gotten the building into good order and even moved our collection of 1,050 family files and books up for the week. It seems like only yesterday that our family files all fit into a milk crate, now they encompass two four-drawer file cabinets and a set of book shelves.

The fair has a lot to offer young and old alike, this year President Carol Sweeney is pleased to announce we have some additional food venders so we no run the gamut from hot dogs and Hamburg’s to frog legs and scallops. The list of entertainment booked in the entertainment building is truly impressive, and that building should be busy everyday now.

The Heritage building staff is energized and ready to assist researchers, please stop by and see your local historians and say hello.

Half-Shire can be reached at the fair at 532 5919 through the week, and by email at yhalfshire@hotmail.com
