Arthur B. Cohn will present, Shipwrecks: What Lies Beneath: Stories from Seneca Lake. The program will outline the history of the Seneca Lake region and, based on his 4-decades of Lake Champlain experience, the logical expectation that shipwrecks would be present. The talk will focus on the first two seasons of the Seneca Lake survey and the significant shipwreck discoveries that will add to our understanding of the canal era when horses and mules walked the towpath.
Cohn is the Principle Investigator for the Spitfire (1776) Project, Seneca Lake Survey Project, and Director Emeritus of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
Dr. Dave Beebe's talk will touch base on D-Day Beaches at Normandy and the Maginot Line. He will talk about his experiences while stationed in Germany and show rare looks into Maginot Line fortresses and a German U-Boat at Saint Nazarie.

The Central New York Antique Tractor Club was founded in the fall of 2001 by a small group of 29 friends who had an interest in antique farm tractors and equipment. In just a few short years, membership has grown to over 100 members.
The organization's primary purpose is the preservation of such information, documents and artifacts related to the history of human endeavor in the invention, development and use of farm tractors and related implements and/or equipment and show them at work.
They are an active club participating in numerous shows and other community events. They are proud of their diverse membership as well as our showing of all types of antique tractors and equipment.
