       The DuBois Area Historical Society will conclude its 2006-07 speaker series on Wednesday, May 30 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 fifth 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, and discuss how the students conduct their research.

       This will be the last general DuBois Area Historical Society meeting for 2006-07. Programs will continue in Fall 2007 and will be announced.

       Thirty-one members and guests attended the April meeting, where Lloyd Riss presented the program “Fly Fishing With Celebrities.”
