To all current and former residents and friends of Cooperstown and the surrounding community, I would personally like to use this opportunity to welcome you to the city of Cooperstown as we celebrate our one hundredth anniversary.
We are all very proud of our heritage and achievements in the past hundred years.
We hope that you enjoy our community and the reflections on it made possible by this book.
Leon A. Sayer, Jr.
Mayor, City of Cooperstown
On behalf of all the members of the Cooperstown Centennial committee and all the others who have worked hard for the success of the centennial, I take pleasure in welcoming all the visitors to the city's celebration July 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, 1982. An event of this size calls forth many hours of dedicated effort from the whole community. This book is sponsored by the centennial organization as a lasting keepsake of the anniversary.
