Historical Association honors

LAKE GEORGE - Maggie McClure, long-time administrator of the Lake George Historical Museum, was honored recently by members of the Lake George Historical Association as they held their annual meeting at the Montcalm Restaurant in Queensbury.

McClure, who retired at the end of 2009, received tribute for more than eight years of service.

During McClure's tenure, development and enhancement of the museum's exhibits were a major contribution to the success of the museum, historical association president Alex Parrott said.

Also, McClure expanded the bookstore to become the largest collection of books for sale in the Village of Lake George, he said.

"The variety of titles and subjects provides the area with an opportunity to learn more of the history of the area as well as the history of our country," Parrott said, noting that children's titles are included in the collection as well.

"The Board of Trustees is very grateful for Ms. McClure's dedication and efforts on behalf of the historical association and museum," he said.

The Association elected the following officers for one year: president, Alex Parrott; vice-president, Bob Benway; recording secretary, Scott Bauberger; corresponding secretary, Marlyn Bray; and treasurer, Kathy Gleason. Also elected to the Board of Trustees for a one-year term were Sandi Bauberger, Bob Benway, Margaret Edwards, Rosalie Folino, Priscilla Greer, Steve Miller, Gary Moon and Joan West.

The Lake George Historical Association is a non-profit organization devoted to the education and preservation of historical information and artifacts of the Lake George area. The museum is open free to the public during the summer and fall and will open for the 2010 season May 15 with an open house event. The museum is located in the old Warren County Courthouse at 290 Canada St., Lake George. Phone messages may be left at 668-5044.
