Ten Mile River Scout Museum to host live local history and ice fishing webinars

January 29, 2021

NARROWSBURG - Last summer through the fall in response to programming needs, as traditional activities were shuttered due to COVID-19 the Ten Mile River Scout Museum (the Museum) created a series of webinars.
Based on the overwhelming success the Museum will continue this program. Prior attendees came from scouts and scouters registered in Greater New York Councils, residents of the area surrounding the Museum and many U.S. states, including California, Florida, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Museum Chairman Michael Drilinger will moderate.
A question and answer session will be held. All will be available on the Museum's YouTube channel.
On Thursday, Febuary 18, 2021, 7 pm Eastern: “The Roebling Delaware Aqueduct and the D&H Canal,” Glenn Pontier, museum co-director, long-time resident Sullivan-Catskills region resident, born in Kingston (the terminus of the Delaware and Hudson Canal), former editor of “The River Reporter,” former executive director of Sullivan Renaissance, and former public information officer for Sullivan County will lead a discussion on the 108-mile Delaware and Hudson Canal that connected Honesdale, PA with Roundout (Kingston).
On Thursday, March 11, 7 pm Eastern, “The Battle of Minisink,” Glenn Pontier, museum co-director will also lead a discussion on the Battle of Minisink, the only Revolutionary War battle in the Upper Delaware region.
On Thursday, March 18, 7 pm Eastern: “Ice Fishing at Ten Miler River,” Carl Lindsley, an expert ice fisherman will lead a discussion on how to begin your ice fishing hobby.
