— Vermont Historical Society Executive Director Mark Hudson presented Sandy Korda, curator of the Orwell Historical Society, with an Award of Merit in Exhibits and Museum Techniques recently.

Korda accepted the award on behalf of the Orwell society for its exhibit, titled "Orwell Women in Fashion: On the Eve of the Civil War".

Korda and seamstress Jane Riedel created the exhibit, designed around a restored collection of handmade dresses, accessories, and antiques dating to the Civil War era.

After traveling throughout Vermont, the exhibit is now permanently housed at the Orwell Historical Society Museum.
