•50 Years Ago - August, 1959•

Gladys Najer, of the Chestertown West Farm Agency, has sold the historic Moston house, a landmark on Mill Creek in Wevertown, to Anthony Sansone and Phillip Olivero of East Yonkers.

Teacher goes to school

Rudolph T. Meola, science teacher at Warrensburg Central School, successfully completed a six-week science institute learning project at Purdue University under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation. (Note: I recently saw Rudy Meola, who now lives in Hague at a Democratic committee meeting, and he said he really enjoys reading the Adirondack Journal every week.)

New arrivals

Bernard "Bud" and Marilyn (Martzinek) Hayes of Chestertown are the parents of a daughter, Susan Marie Hayes, born July 29, 1959 at Glens Falls Hospital.

Mr. and Mrs. Robert "Bob" Hayes of Brant Lake are the parents of a son, James Robert Hayes, born July 29, 1959 at their home. Bud and Bob Hayes are brothers.

Fallout shelters promoted

A new booklet is being distributed throughout the state entitled "Family Fallout Shelter" to assist individuals in the planning and constructing of their own shelters for protection against fallout effects of an enemy nuclear attack. (Remember those nuclear-attack drills in school, during which we crouched under our desks, and we never questioned the teacher why it would be futile in a real bombing?)

Around town

Warrensburg Central School has announced that one part of the sixth grade will be housed at the Methodist Church this year. Two other sections will be held at the Odd Fellows Hall (now VFW and Museum of Local History building). Durwood D. Weaver is principal of the school and John Wappett is his assistant.

Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Raymond of Warrensburg have announced the engagement of their daughter, Jean A. Raymond to Ward B. Towers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Towers of Corinth.
