History of The Homestead Chronicle
The Homestead Chronicle gets its name as a tribute to the now defunct "Wappingers Chronicle" of the late 1800's and the early 1900s. Its tag line was "Devoted to the Interests of the Village"; the "Village" being the Village of Wappingers Falls. For The Homestead Chronicle, our tagline could be "Devoted to the Interests of our Membership", as that is what we strive to do with each issue.
The Homestead Chronicle was designed and produced by Jackie Hammond, a longtime member and friend to our Society. Jackie started the Homestead Chronicle with the April 2015 edition. In 2018, Jackie moved to Delaware to be near her family and handed over her Editor's pen to Eileen Stickle, who is the current Editor. Eileen has maintained the style and content type that is similar to what Jackie had provided to us, but has added her own style along the way.
Of course, we rely on many other volunteers for their time and talent to make this publication a success every quarter; so a big thanks to all who have assisted
