Otsego 2000 Honors Winners

Of Historic Preservation Prizes

Leigh Eckmaier, Village of Gilbertsville and Town of Butternuts historian, accepts congratulations on receiving Otsego 2000's Preservation Advocate Award Friday evening at a reception at the Roseboom Historical Association. I accept this award on behalf of a community that for well over 100 years has been struggling to protect a very precious resource and is finally getting some recognition for that effort. A very long parade of truly dedicated individuals have worked tirelessly during that time. A number of the current cast are with us this afternoon because threats never cease coming at us. It’s a priviledge to be part of that effort.
