ROC the Day 2018

Today, Tuesday November 27th, 2018, is the National Day of Giving. Once again, the Galen Historical Society is participating locally in ROC the Day through the United Way of Rochester, NY. Please consider donating to the Galen Historical Society. Your generous contributions help us to collect and preserve items and information about our local  history so that we can help visitors, students, and the local community to understand our place in  history.
This year the historical society has published a video on YouTube called "Swamp to River" about the construction of the Erie Canal and it's effect on our history. We have also erected a historical marker to honor a local Revolutionary War soldier and assisted a Congressional Medal of Honor society locate a Civil War soldier so that he can be recognized.
Please help us to continue producing programs that spotlight our local history, and to update and preserve our local museums with their amazing collections. Thank you.
