Historian’s Corner

December, 2012

Marion Mohr Wild, Historian

Your Montgomery Village Museum has brought another year of pleasure and historic information to many visitors.  Guests, especially city-folk, admire its countrified informal atmosphere, some resting in our Memorial Garden under the beauty of its stained-glass windows. 

Year-long programs and displays have a been well attended and others are planned for 2013. 

Montgomery Elementary students, their principal, Mrs. Serratore, and her staff are to be commended for the excellent program presented October 19th commemorating the 75th Anniversary of their building.

At the same time, all learned of the prestigious past of education in our locality.  A display of M.H.S. artifacts informed the audience. Afterwards students led residents on tours through the building.

Mrs. Doris MacMurtrie Beatty, 1938 graduate whose winning essay was placed in the building’s cornerstone in 1937 was honored by Mrs. Serratore.  Mrs. Beatty was a beloved teacher in the building for many years following. 

We are grateful to George Weeden, a veteran who served admirably in the Korean Conflict.  His interesting program was heart-rending, and his display will remain for visitors to admire.

Springtime will begin in March with a Gaelic Cultural Day March 9th followed by a Civil War Program in April - May, assisted by the American Legion Post and Boy Scout Troops.  Donations will be collected towards a memorial honoring Mr. William O’Hall, our notable musician who brought musical knowledge and entertainment to our community for many years via his early Community Orchestra, George Washington Band, Montgomery High School’s first orchestra and band.  His many years of volunteerism and civic activities must be recognized now. 

Your donations and suggestions for a memorial are appreciated.  

Happy Hanukkah and Blessed Christmas to all.

Congratulations to the 2016 D.A.R.E. Graduates!

The Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E)  Graduation was held at the Montgomery Elementary School, for the 5th grade class, on Thursday, March 31st.

It is a program taught in schools by specially trained law enforcement officers. It was created by a combined effort of educators and law enforcement personnel in Los Angeles in 1983, and rapidly expanded nationwide.

Officers are carefully chosen and must undergo stringent training to receive their certification as D.A.R.E. instructors. A common thread shared by these D.A.R.E. instructors is their dedication to the task and their commitment to provide children with the knowledge and strength to make choices they can call their very own.".

D.A.R.E. is not focused on "scare tactics," but on helping children develop important life skills in order to make good choices; skills needed to deal with the dangers of illicit and illegal drugs, including alcohol and tobacco. D.A.R.E. provides the guidance children need to make the right decisions for their health and their future.

The 10-week elementary curriculum, taught to our fifth graders, covers many topics that help students understand and deal with social pressures while strengthening their own self-image. Lessons actively involve student participation through workbook exercises, questions and answers, role playing, and group discussion. These lessons include:

  • Personal safety
  • Assertiveness
  • Use and misuse of drugs
  • Managing stress
  • Consequences of behavior
  • Media influences
  • Building self-esteem
  • Role models
  • Resisting peer pressure
  • Support systems
  • Alternatives
  • Decision-making and risk-taking


The Village of Montgomery supports the youth of our village. Congratulations to all of the 5th graders for participating and graduating from the D.A.R.E. Program!

A very special "Thank You" to Village of Montgomery Police Officer Jack Smith, who coordinates the D.A.R.E Program, and for a job well done!
