Local History Projects End 2002-03 Speakers

May 13, 2003 at 9:31 PM

       The DuBois Area Historical Society will conclude its 2002-03 speaker series on Thursday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. with the annual program by Galen Kilmer, featuring DuBois Area High School local history projects. The program in the E.D. Reitz Museum, 30 W. Long Ave., DuBois, is free and open to the public.

       Galen Kilmer is DuBois Area High School’s local history teacher. This will be his third year presenting this program, following in the tradition of Todd Thompson, who did a similar program for many years.

       The program is always unique and surprising. The high school students bring a new perspective to history and how it is examined. Kilmer will present the best of the projects completed by the students in his class, explain the course requirements for the class, and discuss how the students conduct their research.

       This will be the last DuBois Area Historical Society meeting until September 2003. The schedule for 2003-04 will be announced during the summer.

       Over 20 members and guests participated in the April meeting, where Jeanne Curtis taught how to make a Pysanky, the colorful Ukrainian egg decorations. Each participant completed an egg, which they could keep for their home Easter display.
