Alexandria Bay Historical Society, Alexandria Bay, NY
2011 Alexandria Bay Paddle Recipient
The Alexandria Bay Historical Society is a centerpiece of the community in Alexandria Bay and the only place to capture the history of the area. The building was in danger of going into disrepair if the community doesn't rally around to support it. They had lost a window in a storm and four others had been blown in during the past few months. They were in danger of closing their doors if they didn't generate support from the community to make these fixes. The building is a historic landmark so the windows needed to be done in a manner to preserve the building. Money from the event went towards replacing one window.
