Lorraine Sturm, well known Editor, Publisher of the Perry Herald, writes about two Silver Lakers this week
Subscriber Sharon Pratt sent an issue of "Landmarks" magazine (see photo and article by clicking on "Read More..." below). Published by The Landmark Society of Western New York, the Winter 2021 issue features Epworth Hall at Silver Lake Institute as one of its identified "Five to Revive." Look for a banner about it to appear on the property. Having attended meetings, concerts, quilt shows, teas and more there, I can attest that it is a wonderful space worthy of our attention and donations.
It was pure coincidence then that I met Glynne Schultz while at Castile Town Board She is a seasonal laker who wrote a successful grant to NYS that will "revive" the hall's floors. Her energy is contagious and she is looking for anyone who may have studied women's temperance and can link it to the historic Institute to bolster a possible grant application for its Stoody Hall. This was a place visited by Susan B. Anthony and friends. Schultz will handle the grant application; she just needs input from someone who has or is writing to link temperance to the Institute/Stoody Hall, which needs infrastructure improvements.
Editor's Note -- For future reference, Bob Murphy, Sharon Pratt, and Greg Franklin (LINK) have each written, given presentations or led discussions on John Stoody's leadership in the local Temperance Movement and his instrumentality in building the new WCTU headquarters building (now John Stoody Memorial Hall) on the SLI campus following the vicious arson aganst the Temperance property on Walker Road.
