Remembering Fred Bohlander, Fred Bohlander Remembering New City

Back in June I had the pleasure of interviewing Fred Bohlander of Stony Point.  He came down to the library and told javpageme stories for over two hours of his volunteer work as a member of the Wayne Hose Company, his father and the milk delivery business, how he met his wife, and many more memories of life in Rockland County.  When I heard on WRCR this week that he had passed, I was sad that such a genuine guy and a great community leader was gone.  But I was glad that he had shared his story with us and that his family, friends, and the community would have these stories to keep as a reminder of him.   Although Fred lived much of his life in Stony Point, he fondly recalled his days as a young boy in New City where he learned all about farming from his neighbors the Smiths.  You can listen to a part of this on our Soundcloud and at the link below.  Thank you Fred, you can rest in peace having lived a good life.
