Each year the Putnam Valley Historical Society presents an award to one deserving individual who has shown an outstanding effort to preserve and promote local history.
In 2013 Town historian Dan Ricci was the recipient of the award. It was also the year we introduced a new award called the Silleck Award for Service to the Society, named after Harry Silleck, Jr, to honor those who work behind the scenes to make possible the work of the Society.
Mr. Silleck was a tremendous asset to the society and to the town of Putnam Valley as a whole. His generosity has allowed the Society to continue our work to preserve local history and to maintain our small museum.
Members receive invitations to the dinner, but all are welcome.
