“This has been one of my favorite jobs,” she said. “It’s been a wonderful experience for me.”
Vice Chairman Henry Fortin reported that the annual audit by Abbott, Frenyea and Russell was once again free of any problems. That was confirmed by Robert Frenyea of that firm.
“We did give an unqualified opinion, which is the best opinion we can give,” he said.
At the end of the meeting, Duken was re-elected as chairman and Fortin as vice chairman.
WAR OF 1812 FILM
Also at the session, Battle of Plattsburgh Association President Keith Herkalo provided an update on that organization’s activities.
WCNY is creating a documentary about the significance of War of 1812 battlefields in northern New York, he said, including Plattsburgh, Oswego, Ogdensburg and Sacketts Harbor.
Crews have already filmed the Plattsburgh segment, he said.
Forms are available at the War of 1812 Museum to provide input on the importance of battlefield preservation, Herkalo said. That documentary is scheduled to air next spring.
He also sought support for the Plattsburgh Air Force Base Museum, which is slated to open in the spring across the street from the association’s War of 1812 Museum on the former base.
Herkalo said the association has started a capital campaign for improvements and renovations and is already accepting memorabilia for exhibit.
Support of the new museum would be another way for PARC to mark its legacy after its mission is concluded, he said.
One-year memberships to the Air Force Base Museum are available for $25, and lifetime memberships are $250. A valid membership will entitle the bearer and all members of their party free admission.
