NORWICH – Mixed in between stories and laughter, an audience of around 80 at the Chenango County Historical Society’s Capital Campaign Dinner Thursday heard a spirited call to the community: asking it to invest in its own future by investing in local history.
The campaign – which seeks to raise $3.5 million for expanding and enhancing the society’s museum on Rexford Street in Norwich – will hopefully begin to pick up steam in the coming weeks and months, society representatives said.
“Spending now benefits our future generations,” said campaign co-chair Walter O. Rogers. “Those of us that have a general interest in this feel these goals can be achieved. The rewards are well worth it.”
