Coming to America: One Immigrant's Story'

The Solvay Geddes Historical Society will present the second of its "American Stories Series" at its 7 p.m. Oct. 20 meeting at the Geddes Town Hall. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Guest speaker and Solvay resident Bianca Sabene, along with her sister, immigrated to the United States from the Tyrol in the late 1930s as a young girl without her parents. She has a compelling, colorful story to tell from her early education, to the dramatic ocean crossing during wartime, to her family's adjustment to life in America.
