North Hudson The Schroon Lake-North Hudson Historical Society’s annual spring program will be held Wednesday, April 24, at 7 p.m. at the North Hudson town hall.
Randy Kneer, author of the book “The Untold Story of Helen Ellett,” will speak. Ellet devoted a great part of her life as a observer at the Dickerson Fire Tower. She recently celebrated her 92nd birthday.
Kneer’s books will be available at the meeting.
John Freeman, from the Adirondack Mountain Club, and David Thomas-Train will discuss the ADK Fire Tower Walking Challenge.
“It is a wonderful family activity that includes walking to summits with fire towers, earning an official patch as a recognition for completing the challenge and learning more about nature and the environment,” said Loris Clark of the historical society.
Families who are interested in the challenge and cannot make the meeting can get more information from the ADK Mountain Club at 668-4447.
