Woodhaven’s The Topic at Historical Society Meeting


Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association President Ed Wendell will be the guest speaker on Wednesday, May 26th at the Woodhaven Historical & Cultural Society.  The presentation kicks off at 1 pm and the topic is “Woodhaven: A Study in Pictures and Video.”

Wendell is the webmaster of “Project Woodhaven” and says that the presentation is like a live interactive version of the website.  “Over the course of an hour we look at nearly a hundred old pictures and maps of old Woodhaven.  We try and keep the presentation fast-paced and fun.”

The Woodhaven Historical & Cultural Society meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 1 PM at Emmanuel United Church of Christ Meeting Room located at 91st Avenue and Woodhaven Blvd.  Next month, on June 30th, they are having an auction/fundraiser before they take time off for the summer.  They will resume their regular meetings in September.

The Historical Society, and its president Leonora Lavan, will be honored this Fall at the WRBA’s Annual Dinner Dance for their many years of contributions to the traditions of Woodhaven.
