The October 12, 2023 meeting of the Pittsville Area Historical Society was called to order by President Chris Buchanan. The secretary and treasurer reports were presented and approved.

Old business included a report by Chris Buchanan that Scranton School is being painted by Eric Schoerer and Richie Freddette. The school looks great thanks to the hard work of Chris, Eric and Richie. The first coat of paint has also been put on the pow-wow booth. The second coat will be completed next year as soon as the weather permits.

Jan Patrick reported about the pictures in the paper this year. We sent a special Thank You to Mike McKee for giving us the space to tell the readers about the exhibits that are included in the Museum Complex. There were approximately 350 visitors this year.

Marlene Neve and Jan Patrick are completing the stories to be included in Book 9 of the Stories of Our Lives series. It will include a history of cranberry farming and the stories of the Baum Family and Burt & Shirley Iverson.

The to-do list was updated and will be put up for next year’s tasks. That brought up a discussion about all the projects that have been completed this year. Chris Buchanan put together a list of accomplishments that took up a typed page and a half.

New Business included a discussion about Christmas decorating on November 16. Peg Rademan and Mary Czaja will coordinate the decorations. The snow fence and other winterizing will also be completed on that day.

Tammy Hardinger requested that the museum volunteers present a History of Pittsville program for the Lunch and Learn event that the library is planning for November 14.

The museum will be closed to the public until spring of 2024. The Website is being updated. Visit to see our new look.
