Pittsford Historical Society Event

Sunday 15 October, 5:30: Annual Members’ meeting with pot-luck supper.

This is the meeting at which we elect officers. Following the meeting, Steve Belcher will give a presentation on Pittsford artist Hilda Belcher (1881-1963), marking the 60th anniversary of her death. She divided her time between Pittsford and New York City, and was considered one of the leading watercolorists of her day. The presentation will focus on the successes in the early part of her career and her relations with friends in Pittsford.
