Yesterday, I finally had a chance to sit and relax a bit. Snuggled up in my recliner chair with the Sunday OD on my lap, I flipped to the section that has all of the human interest stories and on the front page was an article about the Erie Canal (http://www.uticaod.com/living/x42014651/10-things-to-know-about-the-Erie-Canal) and as I read the article, I was reminded how blessed we are in our area to have people who appreciate the beauty that our region offers, as part of God’s creation and man-made creation, and who want to share all that they know about our valley with those of us who take the time to listen and read. Dorothy Stacy is one of those people from whom we can learn from about history in our area-and the Erie Canal is her expertise, since she has written five books about life on the Erie Canal!
Mrs. Stacy has led a full and interesting life and her passion for history plays a HUGE part of it. Aside from being the author of the Erie Canal Cousins book series for middle readers, she is a member of the Oneida County Historical Society, Vice President of the Town of Paris Historical Society, and author of the Town of Paris Historical Society’s newsletter. I cannot do justice to Mrs. Stacy’s long list of accomplishments and interests, so here are links to her website and blog:
