- Set-up, serve, or clean-up at the upcoming Soup Off;
- Welcome folks attending the Meet & Greet;
- Hide eggs for the Community Easter Egg Hunt.

Feel free to contact the Historical Society (stop by at any of our events and chat) foir more ideas.

The Historical Society currently has several openings on our Board of Directors and is looking for people with an interest in their town and helping with the Society. Currently the positions of Treasurer and Fund Raising chairperson are open.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Marce Heald.

Cat's Meow

There was great interest in our latest Cat's Meow piece, the Edward Hicks House. So our project coordinator, Mary Johnson, has ordered some extra pieces. Anyone still wanting to purchase one should contact her at 215-757-8412. There are still some of the previous Cat's Meow pieces available from Mary.

26 Week Club

Tickets are now available for the fall/winter edition of the 26 Week Club, a fundraising effort by the Historical Society. It's just $1 a week for 26 weeks to join and can be paid all at once or weekly. The more people who enter, the greater the winnings!

In order to make sure there are actually 26 weeks between drawings, the spring drawing will not take place at the Senior Luncheon (May 18th), but on May 27th at Borough Hall.

Tickets are available at most Historical Society events or by calling Joanna Ellis (215-752-0586) (leave a message).

A Blast From Hulmeville's Past

This year we will be featuring condensed excerpts from a lengthly piece entitled, "Boyhood in Hulmeville", written May 15, 1972, by former Hulmeville resident, Harry Schneider "Pat" Gill (1897-1982) and provided by former Archivist Don Haefner.

"Hulmeville was the greatest place in the whole world for a boy. As I recall, the first place to go was up to the Hibbs compound (where the fire house is now) where the big feed bins full of grain and all kind of machinery and chutes. At the entrance was a small office and weighing platform and outside, one or two horses were hitched to a beautiful wagon." (Read this newsletters entire excerpt.)
