Home delivery in Oneida County topic of April talk


CLINTON — As the effects of COVID-19 continue, home delivery has become popular once again, so Clinton Historical Society, 1 Fountain St., is hosting a program that will take a look at home delivery in the late 1940s, 50s, and 60s on Sunday, April 11.

Participants will also take a quick glance at mom-and-pop grocery stores as most of them offered home delivery. 

Bill Huther is active in the Clinton Fire Department and numerous community programs. He is also an aficionado and local expert in at-home delivery services such as milk, foods and snacks. He has restored to mint condition two Divco Delivery Trucks, in local livery.

Because it’s such an expansive topic to cover, Huther will prepare and deliver a follow-up program in May 2022, where he will talk exclusively about milk and dairy product deliveries.

Out of an abundance of care for the health of the publicthere will be no in-person audience. The program is free and will be conducted virtually via Zoom at 2 p.m. April 11. It will also be recorded and placed later on the Clinton Historical Society YouTube Channel. A question-and-answer session will follow the Zoom program.
