Oral History Project Premieres at the Library to Rave Reviews
The premiere screening of the Hawthorne Historical Society Oral History Project: Part One was held at the Society’s second annual Holiday Open House at the Louis Bay 2nd Library, and was met with rave reviews.
“We had a great turnout, and people were buzzing about how thrilled they were to have come and viewed the video,” said Society President Brenna Rooney. “This is definitely something we’ll be doing again in the coming months.”
Earlier this year, the Society invited current and former Hawthorne residents to be videotaped speaking about their long-time memories of the borough. Presenters were also invited to bring pictures and other memorabilia to enhance their presentation. Filming took place this summer at the Library, and a video documentary was created by Society member Glenn Garvie from the footage taken that day.
Copies of the DVD, with commemorative case, are available for purchase for $15 by contacting the Historical Society.
The Hawthorne Historical Society meets the second Monday of every month at 7p at the Louis Bay 2nd library and community center. All are welcome. For further information contact Jeff Gardner at 973-951-7081.
