Well, NBDC has asked us to create a web presence for this new service and we are happy to do so! As NBDC already has a “look” on the web, the site needed to reflect that and remain within those boundaries.
We love working with Chris Gaddis, NBDC’s Financial Services Investment Consultant and a great local guy, and Andrea Paternoster, NBDC’s Vice President, Marketing and Business Development.
We at CMS are happy to announce the completion of the project. The President of the Historical Society, Diane Galusha, worked very hard to gather all the content and wonderful photos that make this website very informative for residents and visitors alike. If you are history buffs like we are, you will love this site. The rich and vibrant history of Middletown tells such a wonderful story-a story many may not know.
HSM board member Joanie Merwin designed the site with Diane and we put it all together.
HSM is holding their Annual Meeting and Luncheon today, October 23rd, followed by “Songs America Voted By: Campaign Songs of the 19th-Century,” a musical program by Linda Russell. All of this is at LaCabana Restaurant, Main St., Fleischmanns. Program (1:30 p.m.) is free and open to the public, made possible with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the New York State Legislature, and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
We have mentioned that we are working on new websites and strategies for two Historical Societies in the area.
The Hobart Historical Society is full steam ahead and we should have a completed site up soon!
The new site is going to showcase not only the re-painting and restoration of their building at 57 Cornell Avenue, but also will have genealogy information for the area cemeteries, really great photo galleries and articles from way back when, plus the new “Historic Half Hours” that are presented each month.
The Hobart Historical Society wants to come together with the community and continue to preserve it’s past and preserve the present since today’s present is tomorrow’s history!
This is a great honor for us to be involved in projects that are so close to our heart (yes, we are history geeks), and the hearts of the individuals who tirelessly maintain this important historical archives.
May 7 UPDATE: Today is the official opening of Moonshadows and Memories! A huge congrats to Walter and Marion. Also, check out the May 5th Edition of the Walton Reporter as they covered the Open House held on May 1.
The newest member of the CMS family is Moonshadows and Memories Bed and Breakfast in Hamden, NY. This is one spectacular place folks, and is slated to open on May 7, 2010.
The Innkeepers, Walter and Marion Velechko, have spent the last 9 nine years lovingly restoring this 1903 house to bring it back to its glory. The Bed and Breakfast is in the Chambers House on Main Street in the center of town.
The home was built by John Chambers Esq., a prominent Hamden business man. Chambers’ father and uncles emigrated from Scotland in the 1800’s and became a very important and influential family in the area.
This spectacular home is rich with history and is filled with Hamden and Delaware County memorabilia. Yet, when you walk through the large, original, double front doors you do not feel like you just entered “GrandMa’s house.” This is a perfect example of history meeting modern and even though we live close by, we want to spend a weekend in this charming Bed and Breakfast!
Check back for updates and website launch date – we are almost finished and wait until you see this place!
Congratulations Walter and Marion and thank you for choosing CMS to embark on this wonderful adventure with you.
