Local History Projects To End 2004-05 Speaker Programs

May 15, 2005 at 9:00 PM

            The DuBois Area Historical Society will conclude its 2004-05 speaker series on Wednesday, May 25 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 fourth 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 2005. The schedule for 2005-06 will be announced during the summer.

            Fifteen members and guests attended the April meeting, where Civil War re-enactor John Sobel presented a program in full military uniform.
