The Gloversville Theatre Corporation Board of Directors will host a ceremony to unveil an official NYS Historic Marker under the marquee of the historic Glove Theatre, 42 N. Main Street, Saturday, June 3 at 2 pm, prior to the Southern Adirondacks Food and Wine Festival and Glove Cities Arts Alliance 2023 Arts Walk.
At the unveiling, speakers include NYS Senator Mark Walczyk (SD 49), NYS Assemblymember Robert Smullen (AD 118), Fulton County Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman John Blackmon, City of Gloversville Mayor Vincent DeSantis, Executive Director of the Fulton County Historical Society & Fulton County Historian Samantha Hall-Saladino, and Glove Theatre Vice President Alex Miller.
The NYS Historic Marker was fully funded with a grant from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation. The Pomeroy Foundation is committed to “supporting the celebration and preservation of community history by providing grants to obtain signage in the form of roadside markers and plaques”. While there are other markers in Fulton County, The Glove Theatre marker is only the Foundation’s second granted in Gloversville. The first was awarded in 2022 to Post 137 of the American Legion, of which Gloversville native and U.S. Congressman Lucius N. Littauer was the sole financial donor.
The Glove Theatre will be hosting Wonder Women, an evening music festival on Saturday, June 10th, which will feature a mix of local and regional musical talent and honor local females for their positive impact within the Fulton County community. The show will commence at 7 pm with tickets at $10. Musicians include JoAnn Sifo, Olivia Hanifan, Cosby Gibson, and Journey Blue Heaven. The honorees include Jennifer Donovan, Indiana Nash, and the late Barbara C. Henry. The evening will be hosted by WENT’s Patti Noble.
