Somers at the Millennium
About half the residents of the small town of
Somers partipicated in a keepsake picture and portrait book to mark
the 2000 millennium.
The book, coordinated and designed by the Somers
Historical Society, contains photographs of this rural town in all
seasons, including civic buildings, holiday and special occasions,
and high school sports teams, as well as historic pictures. Of the
hundreds of family portraits, Mrs. Helen Czechowicz is believed to
be the oldest resident, who turned 104 on January 1, 2000.
Documentation comprises the keepsake book.
