Join us for this Sand Lake Historical Society event: WHO KILLED HAZEL DREW? with Ron Hughes March 13 th  at 7PM. FREE Admission!
On July 6, 1908, pretty and popular Hazel Drew abruptly quit her job as a domestic servant; a job she loved and with a family that greatly respected and admired her. Five days later her body was discovered in a pond fifteen miles away. An autopsy was performed. An investigation began. For two weeks, detectives discovered one baffling clue after another. They learned that Hazel was not the person everyone knew her to be.

"Who Killed Hazel Drew?" by local author Ron Hughes chronicles the nearly three week investigation in upstate New York and examines the clues that left detectives and the media frustrated.

Jim Gaudet and the Railroad Boys

8:00 PM — 10:00 PM
Jim Gaudet and The Railroad Boys make one feel as if they’re traveling in time, maybe back to Louisiana in 1963. Mel Guarino of The Bluebillies said, “There is no other band that I know that can sound so modern and yet so classic and nostalgic. It’s at once, “Old Timey” and “Timeless”, echoing the sound and feel of maybe Hank Williams or the Stanley Brothers, with a “hill-billy” edge.”
