***PENOWA--Alpha and Omeg*** Reminder that the book written by Frank Muzopappa is still available for sale $20. Contact the President or check out the page for this wonderful book!
An album is being assembled of pictures of Veterans. The Veteran does not have to be from Jefferson Township to be in the album. Remember your loved one(s) by submitting a copy of the Veteran's picture to the Historical Society. You can submit a photo to the address above or you can email them to Debbie Chilensky (appointed special projects coordinator) at email@example.com. For any further information needed on this please contact Debbie, or Judy Cooper at 724-729-3511 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, the jths is asking for any stories or information that can be given with the photos. This project will be a long tedious one that will benefit the generations to come. If the stories aren't recorded how will the young know what each service man or woman went through? What the families endured with long absences of loved ones? Any and all information is welcome. Please consider being interviewed for this. Any and all help is appreciated. Debbie can also be reached by phone at (724)947-4476. Thank you!!
