Tours, memorial service part of Judy Bolton Days

Judy Bolton Days continues in Potter County, celebrating the writings of Margaret Sutton, who authored a series of detective stories with special appeal to young girls.

Her books about the fictional character, Judy Bolton -- many of them based on Potter County landmarks and historic events -- have captivated readers and book collectors for decades.

On Saturday (today) from 9 am to 3:30 pm, the organizers will conduct a tour of sites that were used as backdrops for some of the Judy Bolton books, with a lunch stop at the Austin Area School.

Rounding out Saturday’s program is a memorial service at 5; dinner at Galeotti’s in Austin at 6:30; and the annual Judy Bolton Trivia Contest at the Westgate Inn at 8:30.
