Scheduled for Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm
Utica, N.Y. - Take a whimsical and sentimental journey through the Adirondack Park in the 1940s with John Taibi. Taibi will tell the story of his father's trip from Utica to Lake Placid on the New York Central Railroad (today the Adirondack Scenic Railroad). Taibi's father, a World War II veteran, was sent to Lake Placid to re acclimate to normal life after living as a POW overseas. Period photographs will be used to illustrate what his father and other POW survivors saw along the way.
This program takes place in the center's main gallery on Saturday, February 11, starting at 1:00 PM.
