Hyde Park Historical Society treats naval officers

HOLIDAY CHEERS: Ralph Osterhoudt and Patsy Costello with some of the many holiday treats the Town of Hyde Park Historical Society shipped, via the Hyde Park American Legion, to the officers and crew of the USS Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt DDG #80. Osterhoudt chairs this annual event for the American Legion, and Costello is president of the historical society. This year several boxes of cookies and candy were collected, as well as an afghan from the “Eleanor Roosevelt Knit-In.” “Project Fala,” as it is known, has gone on for the last several years, with help from the Hyde Park Central School District and local churches.
