Meeting planned

JOHNSTOWN — A historical program about Fulton County’s “notorious” murderers planned for Sept. 19 in Johnstown is sold out, but the public may still be able to catch the show in Northville.

County Historian Samantha Hall-Saladino recently reported on the program to the Board of Supervisors’ Economic Development and Environment Committee.

She said the free program — “Famously Infamous: Fulton County’s Notorious Murderers” — will be held Sept. 19 at Union Hall. But Hall-Saladino said the program, for which space was limited, is already sold out.

Hall-Saladino said that due to a long waiting list, popularity of the event, and request for an additional presentation, “Famously Infamous” will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 25 in the Northville Public Library. The event is again free, but space is limited. Those interested in attending should call the library at (518) 863-6922.

Hall-Saladino reported she attended three recent events in the community.

She noted the third annual Local Author Book Fair was conducted Aug. 10 in the Schine Gallery during the Twilight Market in downtown Gloversville. The event was a collaboration between the county historian, Mysteries on Main St. in Johnstown, and the Fulton County Museum in Gloversville. Ten local authors participated, representing books with subjects like local history, historical fiction, mystery, children’s books and others.

Hall-Saladino said the Tommy Gee Quarter played Aug. 22 on the museum’s lawn. She said the next collaborative event there will be a Veteran’s Day concert of patriotic songs with the Dreamcatchers at 2 p.m. Nov. 11.

She also attended the state Office of State History’s County and Borough Historians Institute Aug. 24 at the State Museum in Albany.
