THIS WEEKEND– Shelton Historical Society

At the annual meeting of the Shelton Historical Society on Sunday, Jan. 29, Robert Novak, Jr. will describe events as depicted in newspapers from the past in a talk entitled, Yesterday’s Headlines. The meeting will be held at the Huntington Congregational Church Fellowship Hall, 19 Church St. in Shelton at 2 p.m.

A lifelong Shelton resident, Mr. Novak penned the historical column “Hometown History” in the Huntington Herald for 15 years, and serves as the City’s Municipal Historian. A former executive Director of the Derby Historical Society, he now conducts the popular program “Yesterday’s Headlines” at local libraries, health facilities, and organizations. Having amassed an extensive and growing collection of scans from local newspapers over the years, he looks forward to sharing its highlights with Shelton Historical Society members and guests.

There will be a brief business meeting prior to the presentation. The meeting is free and open to the public, though donations are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
