OSWEGO, NY â€“ The Leadership Oswego County Class of 2010 will soon unveil its History of Oswego County board game.
The very special event will take place May 5.
The event has had a change in location and will now be held at the American Foundry, 246 W. Seneca St.
Created as a tribute to Oswego City Historian Rosemary Nesbitt, the entertaining History of Oswego County board game also contains an informative fact sheet on Oswego Countyâ€™s history.
The class is excited about the debut of the game and is hoping to raise enough money to produce games that they can distribute to area schools, libraries, and other organizations throughout Oswego County.
â€œWe are looking forward to the game’s debut and hope that the community will have as much fun playing the game as we had in developing it,â€ said LOC class member Carolyn Handville. â€œIt was Rosemaryâ€™s mission to research significant historical sites, the events that took place there, and the people that helped shape the history of Oswego County. She enjoyed passing that information on to others and keeping Oswego Countyâ€™s history alive for generations to come. In her honor, the LOC class of 2010 wants to continue Rosemaryâ€™s mission and continue to inspire interest in the history of Oswego County.â€
The LOC class invites community members to join them and celebrate the debut of the History of Oswego County game on May 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the American Foundry.
