The event is aimed at providing an opportunity for groups of rural and city youths to meet and learn “how the other half lives.”
The program will be under the direction of Don Tuttle, farm broadcasting director at stations WGY-WRGB, Schenectady, and Milo V. Stewart, associate in education at the New York State Historical Association, which has its headquarters in Cooperstown.
Convening in Schenectady on Nov. 1, the group will be guests of the General Electric Company. There will be special guided tours of several of the company’s major departments.
They will arrive in Cooperstown in time for an old-fashioned harvest supper, followed by a talk by Dr. Louis C. Jones, director of the New York State Historical Association, whose topic will be “Tales of the Cooper Country.”
The final event in the two-day session will be a square dance at Fenimore House.
