WESTERNVILLE — The Town of Western Historical Society invites the public to attend its monthly program tonight at 7 p.m. at Liberty Hall, Main Street. Melanie Zimmer will present the program “Myths, Legends and Lore of Central New York.”

Zimmer will tell tales of Central New York based on stories from her books on the region, including those close to Westernville. While often overlooked, this region has evolved both a fascinating history and a unique set of legends and stories that reflect who we are as a people, the historical society said.

Zimmer has written several books, including: Myths, Legends and Lore, Central New York and the Finger Lakes, Forgotten Tales of New York, Curiosities of the Finger Lakes and Curiosities of Central New York.

Refreshments will be served. For information, contact Brenda Smith at 315-337-0152.
