Hannibal Historical Society Kicks Off 2014 Season

HANNIBAL, NY – The Hannibal Historical Society will kick off its 2014 program season on March 24 at 7 p.m. with the history of the Hannibal Nursery School.

Alena Patane Sanford will tell about the programs and educational activities that go on at the school, open to preschool children aged 3 to 5.

In the late 1970s, the building we now know as the Community Center was in danger of being demolished due to structural deficiencies.

Thanks to a group of hard working citizens led by Roslyn Hastings, the Hannibal Landmark Committee was born.

The committee was responsible for the building being renovated and used as a Community Center.

The building now houses the Hannibal Free Library, Hannibal Historical Society, Hannibal Nutrition Site and a Senior Citizen Group and the Hannibal Nursery School.

In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the founding of the Landmark Committee, there will be two programs presented, the Nursery School being the first.

The Community Center is located on Oswego Street.

Refreshments will be served.

The public is invited to attend.
