Meeting of the Local Legends on Dec. 5

JAMESTOWN – Notable residents of the Chautauqua Lake Region will be showcased at the Robert H. Jackson Center, 305 E. Fourth St., Jamestown on Dec. 5. This celebration is hosted by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation and is free and open to the public.

This event will feature local authors Kathleen Crocker and Jane Currie as they discuss their newest book, “Legendary Locals of the Chautauqua Lake Region.” From founding families in the 1800s to contemporary conservationists in 2011, this book celebrates all those who have impacted the Chautauqua Lake region. Legends featured in the book, as well as friends and family members of those who are no longer with us, will also be in attendance.

Beginning at 4 p.m., guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the authors and local legends. At 5 p.m., Crocker and Currie will discuss the process of researching and publishing a book on local history. There will also be a question and answer session.

Guests are encouraged to bring their copies of Legendary Locals of the Chautauqua Lake Region because there will be an autograph session. A limited number of books will be available at the event for $20. All proceeds from the book sale will benefit the Fund for the Region at the Community Foundation.

Light refreshments will be served and reservations are not necessary. For more information on this event, please contact the Community Foundation at 661-3390.
