LECTURE | "The History of the Snowman" 

I fondly remember being taught, as a kid, to look on the bright, magical side of winter by building an army of snowmen. For generations, whenever the snow is just right, children have been ushered outdoors for fresh air and the task of adorning the front lawn with the most ubiquitous of winter sentinels. My siblings and I sang "Frosty the Snowman," and watched the animated favorite of the same title, in which a pile of snow was transformed via enchanted top hat into a singing, dancing, adventuring character.

But did you ever wonder where the tradition of building snowmen came from? Join the Honeoye Falls/Town of Mendon Historical Society this week to find out. On Thursday, January 7, Honeoye Falls historian Lynne Menz will present a special program, "History of the Snowman," at the Mendon Community Center (167 North Main Street, Honeoye Falls). The event will take place at 7:30 p.m., and is free to attend. For more information, call 624-5655.
