Our 2019 Schedule of Events


*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!

    When did Apollo stop the week long moonlanding celebration? I remember as a kid that was the highlight of the summer.

    1. It’s been a few years since we’ve had the week long carnival. Lack of volunteers and $$ sadly enough.
