I Got My Thrill on Newberry Hill

Just in time for holiday giving or enjoying on a snowy day is the latest publication from Rochester Avon Historical Society, a new book entitled I Got My Thrill on Newberry Hill: Rochester Area's World Renowned Ski Jump.  Author Penny Frank Reddish is uniquely qualified to offer this illustrated history of Rochester's ski jump: her family sold the property on which the ski jump was built, and her father and brother participated in its construction.

This book is full of photographs and accounts from Frank family diaries that are available nowhere else. If you'd like to read the authoritative story of the ski jump that hosted internationally-ranked competitors such as Olympian Anders Haugen and Norwegian jumper Johanna Kolstad, this is the book for you.  Copies are available for $9 at Lytle Pharmacy in downtown Rochester and through the Rochester Avon Historical Society's online store.  Also, copies will be available at the RAHS booth in the Kris Kringle market in downtown Rochester on the weekend of December 5-6.
