On Saturday, December 4, at 10 a.m, the Cortland County Historical Society and the Cortland Free Library present Janie’s Tree, an original story about schoolchildren in 1920s Cortland and the history of Christmas trees.
The read-aloud will be followed by a short discussion of life was like in Cortland 100 years ago. Then we’ll make beaded candy canes to take home.
