COXACKIE — On Thursday, Oct 10th at the Vedder Research Library in Coxsackie, Local Historian Richard Muggeo will present the program “The Great Flu Pandemic.” 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Great Flu Pandemic of 1918-1919. Join Mr. Muggeo as he tells the historic events of those years, covering what happened around the world, in the U.S. and in Greene County.

The program will begin at 7pm and be held in the reading room of the Greene County Historical Society’s Vedder Research Library located on the grounds of the Bronck Museum. The Bronck Museum is located just off US 9W 1.5 miles south of the intersection of routes 9W, 385, and 81 near Coxsackie. This program is free and open to the general public, but donations would be appreciated in support of the Beecher Scholarship – a $1,000 annual scholarship awarded to a Greene County senior high school student who writes a paper related to Greene County history.
