Ned Ward entertained and enlightened a nice crowd with his lecture on the history of spearfishing and the use of fish decoys on Lake Chautauqua. As usual, he provided an in-depth look at the social and economic forces driving this thriving 19th and early 20th-century industry.

The audience enjoyed a wonderful social hour with appetizers provided by The Village Casino and beverages courtesy of Bag and String and Ellicott Brewing Company. As always, we thank our business neighbors for their generous support.
