History Day Fair is a success

Thanks to everyone who helped make the History Day Fair at Cooperstown Central School a success. We want to thank all the evaluators who donated their time. We want to thank the PTO for their help organizing the prizes.

We also want to take time to thank the following businesses who have generously made donations toward the awards for the History Day Fair: American Legion, Clark Sports Center, Cooperstown PTO, Cooperstown Rotary Club, The Daily Star, The Farmers’ Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, and NYSHA, The Freeman’s Journal, The National Baseball Hall of Fame, and the VFW. Without everyone’s continued support, the History Day Fair would not be a success.
