Historical Society of Frankford Board Election

The Historical Society of Frankford held their Board Election one month late this year on April 12th at the monthly meeting.  Jim Young, Robert Penn, Laura Hortz-Stanton and Jerry Kolankiewicz all retained their seats.

Jim Young, President, presented his annual report of accomplishments which mainly entailed upgrading systems and structural repairs and the much needed repainting of the interior.  Details at this link.

Sara Brower, Secretary, gave the activity summary for 2015.  Read the details here.

You always meet interesting people at the HSF and this month was no exception. Michael Frechette digs privies.  He is not a professional archaeologist but does it for the love of finding interesting things.  You can read about his at this link to a story done by the Star last year.  The video below was our Periscope interview done on the spot.  Frechette is talking to the HSF about making a presentation at a future meeting.

The program was topped off with a presentation by Sara Brower on Robert Matlock who was the clerk who actually wrote by hand the Declaration of Independence.  See the video below that was done on Periscope so sorry but it is unedited but complete.
