For most of the last two decades the Historical Society of the Nyacks has been blessed by the enthusiastic participation of James Hershberger on its Board of Directors. A man of many talents, Jim always stepped forward to do what was needed to help the organization run smoothly.
Sadly, Jim died Friday morning of a heart attack with little advance warning and apparently no suffering. He will be sorely missed as we try to carry on not only his work for the community but also his kind and helpful spirit.
