OSWEGO, NY – The Heritage Foundation of Oswego County will host its annual Preservation Appreciation Awards on May 26 at 7 p.m. in the Community Room of the historic Oswego Public Library, 120 E. Second St.
For more than 30 years, the Heritage Foundation has recognized worthy historic preservation, beautification and volunteer efforts at the annual event.

The awards ceremony will showcase the positive work of 12 recipients that have demonstrated significant examples of preservation in the Oswego County community.
