3 Everyone is welcome, but advance registration and payment of $18 per person is required by Aug. 3. This fee covers all activities for the day, including the catered lunch and bus tour. Make checks payable to Nunda Historical Society and send to Box 341, Nunda, NY 14517.

Why you should attend

“This day is all about local history, geneology and fun. If you are working on a family geneology, interested in research methods or in publishing your work, this is the place to get help or niew ideas. If you are a Civil War enthusiast, you will be introduced to a new book based upon letters between a Nunda soldier and his close friend. Newcomers to the area and longtime residents can both learn and share memoris during the Nunda Area Historical Bus Tour. There are other activites too, but if you want to just check out the museum and sit and visit with old friends, that's just fine.” -- Joan Schumaker, homecoming chairperson
