In October of 2011, Amy Browne of Athens, Pennsylvania published two pictorial books of the flooding, which affected our communities on September 8, 2011. Both books contain the same photographs, but one book is in full color to show the true devastation which occurred.
Ms. Browne used photographs of various people including Christel Snyder, Charlotte Evert- Hajduga, and Sandra Fiske. These photographs include Athens Borough, East Side in Sayre, East Athens, Sheshequin, and Ulster Pennsylvania, along with some from Waverly New York.
Some of the proceeds of each book will be donated to the Athens Township Fire Hall for flood relief and recovery. Currently the books are being sold on Amazon, but Ms. Browne will also have some at her next book signing at the Athens Township fire hall on December 3, 2011. Books will be available at Barnes & Nobles and other retailers in the coming weeks.
