Local historian Flanders reflects on Chautauqua, shares stories
The Chautauqua Storytellers Ravine program, sponsored by the Bird, Tree & Garden Club, will take place at 4:15 p.m. today at the Roger Tory Peterson Nature Classroom. William Flanders, year-round Chautauqua resident, will share his memories and experiences of the Institution.
“I have known Chautauqua since I was a kid in first grade,” Flanders said. “All my life, except for college at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and military service in the army, I’ve been at Chautauqua.”
