Press Release, Albion Central School
ALBION – Four seventh grade school students recently spent a day researching the life of Albion’s famous Santa Claus, Charles W. Howard.
Olivia Andrews, Brooke Doty, Grace Nesbitt and Ava Woolston visited Mt. Albion Cemetery and met with Orleans County Historian Catherine Cooper, Hoag Library Archivist Delia Robinson, former Christmas Park employee Jack Miles and former historian Bill Lattin.
The students, along with others in Tim Archer’s Service Learning class, are working on a booklet about Howard. Once finished, the booklet will be distributed to local libraries. It will be unveiled on December 10 at the Hoag Library.
Community members are welcome to attend, and anyone with artifacts from the former Christmas Park can contact Mr. Archer or the Hoag Library to showcase their items at the event in December.
