Greetings Friends and Supporters of Pennsville Township Historical Society:
At the January 2017 General Meeting I had the honor of being installed as the new President and Wayne Patrick is the new Vice President. We are both very excited about this opportunity and look forward to the great things we all will accomplish together this year. I would like to extend a heart-felt "thank you" to outgoing President Donna Litvin for her leadership, dedication and hard work these last five years. We have been very busy working on projects and planning upcoming events, and here’s a recap of our activities so far:

Coming up in October the Society will reach our 30 year anniversary! The success that PTHS has had is a direct result of the commitment of many, many people working together throughout the years. The saying “teamwork makes the dream work” certainly applies to us! We do have a real need for more members to get involved with projects and activities throughout the year. If you’d like to volunteer in some way, please let me know.

Kind regards,
Gail Mangiocco
