Thursday, June 7th, 6:00pm
Gloversville Middle School auditorium
Join the Fulton County Historical Society and Museum and the Fulton County Historian’s Office for a presentation of “Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga Lake.” Saratoga County Historian Lauren Roberts and Director of Planning Jason Kemper will give a brief introduction and lead a Q&A session after the film. DVDs will be available for purchase. Proceeds from the evening’s sales will go to the Fulton County Museum.
“Harnessing Nature” chronicles the incredible journey of the creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake, including first-hand accounts of valley residents and original documents describing this amazing feat of engineering. For the residents of the Sacandaga Valley, the loss of their homes and communities was devastating. For the residents downstream who had suffered staggering losses from years of flooding, it was long overdue. For those who live along it’s shores today, it is important to understand the story of the Great Sacandaga Lake.
