The members of the Dutchess County Historical Society (DCHS) and all town historians are launching a massive project – and every resident of the county has the opportunity to help out.

With 2018 having been proclaimed as the “Year of the Veteran” in Dutchess County and an emphasis on World War I, given this year’s 100th anniversary of the end of fighting, local historians have already come across a few incredible finds and they know many more await in scrapbooks and attics.
The effort will actually honor all veterans of all conflicts and all are encouraged to come forward and contribute.

And it’s all about digital scanning. All original artifacts will stay with families.

The family of Donna Trost Pedersen, a former Rombout Middle School nurse, was honored during a “Pink Out” Doubleheader at Beacon High School on Friday, Jan. 12. Pedersen, who fought courageously against breast cancer since 2014, died on Dec. 4, 2017. She just turned 46 years old.

“She was extremely special. That’s why we thought her family should be honored today,” said John Giametta, Director of Physical Education, Athletics, Health & Recreation in the BCSD.

The first game was the Varsity Girls Basketball team against James. I. O’Neill High School, which is in the Highland Falls-Fort Montgomery Central School District. A teacher in that district, Christopher Page, died in a car accident earlier this month.
