Notes from the Director – August 2022

I hope everyone is having a great Summer! Anyone visiting the Mansion on a Tuesday will be greeted by our new volunteer, Beverly McGraw and on a Friday afternoon you will be greeted by Sherry Vesotski. Beverly and Sherry both live in Greenhurst and came to the Fenton from RSVP, a volunteer program for Seniors. Welcome to our Fenton Family, Beverly and Sherry!

Fenton History Center membership is changing to a fiscal year of January 1st to December 31st. If your membership is ready for renewal in July, August, or September, we will prorate it to half priced for the rest of 2022. You will then need to renew again in January. Memberships due for renewal after September will be full price and will not expire until December 2023. If you have questions regarding the change, please call us at 716-664-6256.

Look for our table at the Jamestown Regional Celtic Festival on Saturday, August 27th , held in Mayville at Lakeside Park. We will be there from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm and will be selling gift items, t-shirts, mugs, books and taking research requests for genealogy. The Festival is a fun event for everyone especially if you enjoy Celtic music and dancing, traditional Scottish Athletic Games, and of course, bagpipes!
