At its May meeting,TAUNY’s Board of Directors welcomed Madeline Snell Pennington to the board. Pennington retired from her position as Executive Director of Cornell Cooperative Extension in Saint Lawrence County in 2005. Prior to that position, she had decades of experience working for the Cornell Cooperative Extension in various roles starting in 1983 when she was hired as a 4-H Program Leader. She also has a background in teaching and received her Master’s in Education from SUNY Potsdam in 1988.

 

Madeline Snell Pennington was born in Parishville and currently lives on the beautiful St. Regis River in Parishville with her husband, David W. Pennington. She has a great admiration for the North County, especially its rural heritage, which she feels a close connection to since her family arrived in the area in the early 1800’s. She is passionate about farmland, forests, wildlife, and rivers and interested in preserving and protecting these aspects of our rural life for the next generation.

 

Pennington has joined numerous local groups and organizations and is currently Regent of the Nihanawate Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, President of the Parishville Hilltoppers Senior group, and Vice President of the Parishville Historical Association. She is also a member of the St. Lawrence County Historical Association, the St. Lawrence Power and Equipment Museum, and the Borderline Quilters.

The TAUNY Center is located at 53 Main Street, downtown Canton, NY. TAUNY, Traditional Arts in Upstate New York, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people understand and appreciate the folk traditions and local culture of everyday life—present and past—in the North Country. To do so, TAUNY seeks to research and preserve a record of diverse groups, customs and traditions; to recognize and empower traditional arts and artists; to identify and promote regional identity; and to provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn about folklore and local culture.
