GHS Newsletter 12.3 Fall 2010
Volume 12.3 Fall 2010 is oriented to the people of Gilboa and Conesville, with an article by Joan Mullen on the people of the Pinochle Club; the recollections of the Coast Guard in World War II by Ed Bilinski; and a new regular feature: They Lived in these Hills (a series of vignettes on people, couples, families, and [yes] even a pet cemetery). The letters of the Reed family are continuing thanks to Bob Morrissey, and it has been greatly expanded by the family documents of Scott Reed. Holiday celebrations are also in abundance, with the history of Flat Creek’s July Fourth celebration and Carlton Lewis’s recollections of turkey shoot festivities of past and present. For outdoor activities, there is an article on building a hiking trail on your own property by Clarence Putman (NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Long Path Hiking Trail); and a final follow-up on the Minekill Bridge from the perspective of the Overlook.
