Our 2019 Schedule of Events
*Sunday, Sept. 8 6:30 p.m. at the W.C.T.U. Building. Stan Gordon will present “Astonishing PA Encounters: Past & Present” referring to some of the most famous & unusual encounters of UFO’s, Bigfoot, and other strange cases. Learn about the latest local sightings. Do monsters really exist?!
*Sunday, October 6 Dr. Tom Soltis from the Westmoreland County Community College will be back to speak about the 1918 Flu Pandemic. Tom was with us in March but due to a snow storm, the attendance was low. You don’t want to miss this exciting & informative presentation.
*Sunday, November 3 6:30 p.m. at the W.C.T.U. Building. Dr. Stephen Coleman will give a presentation about the Battle of Gettysburg based on his book “Discovering Gettysburg”. More than just a history of the battle, it also is a memoir and travelogue as it introduces the reader to the modern town of Gettysburg, and the influential characters (living and dead) that have left such a profound influence on our psyche.
If you know of someone who has an interesting tale to tell, please let us know as we are always on the lookout for presenters!
