Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning, dear readers: How’s everyone this week? Welcome to autumn. I love all the seasons here in Wilson, but I think autumn is up there at the top. When I retired, I chose a place as far north as possible, as I hate steaming hot weather. Little did I know that the Lake Ontario shore offered such a great climate. I really shouldn’t be telling you this, as everyone will want to live here — and I prefer to keep it my “little” secret.
At 7 tonight, aerial photographer Dick Gallagher will present a special program at the Wilson Historical Society, 645 Lake St. Dick will discuss his love of flying and photography and share some of his many photographs. A portion of the program will be devoted to the early pioneers in aviation and, in particular, crop dusting in the Wilson/Olcott area. Refreshments will be served.
