Our own Dr. Louis Ladocsi will talk about his experiences as a medical volunteer in Haiti, where he goes yearly with a medical group to provide help. Dr. Ladocsi is a very charismatic, interesting speaker so this should be a unique evening.

We will meet in the town hall on Saturday, September 13. Time 7:00PM. Refreshments will be provided after the presentation so you will have time to talk with Dr. Ladocsi.

Announcements Many of you may not be aware of our group. We are the Mount Washington Historical Society, Inc. and working toward becoming a 501(c)3 non profit. Our mission statement is: "For the protection and study of the history and culture of Mount Washington".

The purpose of the organization shall be for the preservation of the 1867 schoolhouse, the collection, preservation and safekeeping of any articles and items of historical interest, such as personal records connected with the town , the marking of historical sites in the town, as well as a place ( the school house) where documents , relics and historical records related to the town may be seen and studied by the public. The Society will also preserve records of the early settlers in the area as may be necessary , useful or desirable for the furtherance or attainment of the above purpose.

To date we have had an open house at the North School House. Margaret(Peg)Muskrat spoke about her mother(Margaret(Peg) Laragh and her time as teacher at the school. Also a former student , Martha Houghtaling O'Connor . We had a surprising attendance from the mountain and off mountain people for our first effort. Our next project was the "Black Art" charcoaling in Mount Washington. Mary King Austin and Cory Hines were the developer and presenters of that part of the towns history. It was used at the Copake Iron Works for the summer of 2013. There were many positive comments from those who visited the Iron Works . Many of you were also able to view and hear the presentation at the Town Hall this summer.

We have been working with the Select Board to secure a lease for the school house. The town will vote on Tuesday August 19 at 7PM at a special town meeting. If you are a registered voter, please come out and vote and support our efforts to be able to preserve the North School House, for future generations.

If you would like to become a member, our dues are $15.00 individual and $25.00 for a family.
