Seneca News-Dispatch gets gift from the past

A very fragile 104-year-old book has found its way back to Seneca, its original home.
Diane Friend, publisher of the Seneca News-Dispatch, received a call in January about a book that had belonged to the late Bob Thomas. It was a bound volume of copies of the News-Dispatch that were printed in 1903-04.
“Bob always said his first job was emptying waste baskets at the Seneca News-Dispatch,” said his widow, Judy.
Thomas kept the book in a plastic bag as he moved about. After he died a couple of years ago the book was stored among his personal items.
A granddaughter found the book recently and asked her mother what to do with it. They decided to give it to the News-Dispatch.
