Bob was involved with 4H, and also with Cornell Cooperative Extension. He was a member of the SUNY Canton College Council. He was the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus of that college. He also was a member of the first St. Lawrence County Board of Legislators. Bob is 96, retired, and now living at Partridge Knoll. He will talk about the changes that have occurred during his lifetime while living in this area.
