Orangetown History Talk in May

Posted April 4th, 2012

A public presentation on the history of Orangetown will be given Wednesday, May 4 in the Pearl River Public Library by the co-authors of the new book by that name which was released for sale just last month.

The speakers will be Orangetown Historian Mary Cardenas and Paul Clark, a volunteer at the Orangetown Historical Museum and Archives, who together produced the 128-page book “Orangetown” for the Arcadia Publishing Company’s’ Images of America series.

The talk will begin at 7 p.m. in the library’s community meeting room, as a part of the monthly meeting of the Rockland-Bergen Post Card Collectors Club.

The meeting itself will begin at 6:30 p.m., with trading of post cards among members and guests. After the talk, the club will conduct a short business meeting. Guests are invited to attend any part of the meeting they wish, and can just stay for the book presentation if that is their primary interest.

Many of the club’s members collect historical post cards of their own home towns, and many of these have been incorporated into the book, which contains over 200 century old photos of Orangetown scenes.
