Endowment Fund Tops $10,000
A generous donation by Scott & Janice Lampert to the Otsego County Historical Society's Endowment Fund boosted the total over $10,000.

The Endowment Fund was established in 2008 and is
now closer to its initial goal of $15,000.  Once that milestone is reached, a portion of the money will be available for special projects.
