PUTNAM TOWN CRIER - August 23, 2018
PUTNAM - The Aspinock Historical Society of Putnam recently announced its Annual Appeal campaign, “Preserving the Past and Planning for the Future.”
The goal is to raise $15,000. Proceeds will be used to continue Phase 2 of renovating the Cady Copp cottage to make it safe for the public to view and a step in creating a museum of Putnam’s oldest home. Continual maintenance of the Gertrude Warner Boxcar Children’s Museum is also a goal of the Appeal.
Come to hear the story of the plan to organize a gang to pull off a daring bank robbery in 1941. Bill Pearsall, Putnam’s Municipal Historian and President of the Aspinock Historical Society will bring this story to life through the use of power point. His great animation will bring you right into the center of the plot. Don’t miss this little known piece of history of Putnam’s past!
