History of Grafton Lake State Park at the Senior Center
GRAFTON – Last year Grafton Lakes State Park celebrated its 50th anniversary. To honor this milestone and to honor all those associated with the park, members of the public were interviewed to gain an insight into their memories, preserving their oral histories for generations to come. Former employees, long-time visitors, and those who used to own land where the park is today were all interviewed and their contributions complied into a 75-minute one-of-a-kind film. Oral Histories of Grafton Lakes State Park will be showing at the Everett Wagar Senior Center in the town of Grafton at 12:30 on Thursday, January 27th.
All are invited to attend this event. Lunch (Spaghetti and Meatballs) will served at noon with a suggested $3 donation. Please call the center at (518) 279-3413 to be added to the lunch list.
