The Hudson Valley resident was in the village to meet Mary Jean Cerbini, a fifth-grade teacher in Mahopac, and Jennifer Cassidy of the Putnam County Historian’s Office to review the museum’s history collection with Executive Director Cassie Ward.

Cerbini and Wildman are developing a project to incorporate Putnam County artifacts into local history lessons.
