Forester to describe logging in bygone era

WARRENSBURG - On Thursday, Nov. 5, retired Finch Pruyn forester and historian Dick Nason will deliver his ever-popular talk on "Old Adirondack Logging" in Warrensburg.

Sponsored by the Warrensburgh Historical Society, the event - complete with vintage movies, slides and photographs - will take place at 7 p.m. at the Masonic Hall, 3893 Main Street.

Because he was actively involved in the realm of logging during his long career with Finch Pruyn Paper Co., Nason speaks from personal experience. Using slides and early black and white and color movies, his lively talk captivates both young and old, Historical Society representative Steve Parisi said. There will be time for questions and personal remembrances following the talk.

All are welcome to this free presentation. Light refreshments will be offered. The Masonic Hall is handicap accessible. For additional information, contact Society secretary Rita Ferraro, at 623-2213.
