Learn some local history and discover why so many people have such a sweet spot for this Ramapo Mountain area. The Tuxedo Historical Society will present Voices from the Past, on successive Sundays, March 5 and 12. The video series of historical interviews explores local life via interviews with lifelong Tuxedo residents about what it was like in those bygone days.

The Tuxedo Chamber of Commerce meets Thursday, March 20, at the Tuxedo Historical Society at 6pm.

The Sunday, March 5, video interviews begin with Mike Crisci, born in 1906, who was a former Town Supervisor and employee of the Tuxedo Pharmacy. Also, the THS will show an interview with Leslie Davenport, born in 1904, an area a plumber who worked for the TPA.
