Great Party, Great Cause!
On Saturday, November 23, from 6pm ’til 10 pm, the Historical Society of Riverton will host a very historic house party at 100 Lippincott Avenue to raise funds for cash awards to students at Riverton School and Palmyra High School who use the HSR’s archives to write about aspects of local history.
Ticket price is $50 per person and includes an open bar and dinner buffet of smoked pork and beef brisket, roasted vegetables, pickled vegetables, cornbread and an assortment of seasonal pies.
Kids under 18 admitted free, but let us know that you’ll be bringing them so that we can plan properly. Bounce house and kid-friendly snacks and refreshments will be provided.
Tickets are on sale at the Riverton Library and the Guitar Guild of Palmyra. The Guild has a credit card reader. You may also purchase tickets from me by responding to this email or calling or texting my cell: 856-505-7087.
In 2020, HSR will be celebrating it’s 50th birthday, and we’ve been thinking about how to recognize this benchmark and better connect with families and young people in Riverton. At the same time, we’ve been cleaning up our archives, improving how we store them (these are currently in the Riverton Library’s basement) and putting a lot of archival material online (see http://www.rivertonhistory.com). The most recent Criterium Bike Race’s proceeds went toward our archives project.
Each year, the HSR’s Betty Hahle Award has recognized a Riverton School student who excels in history. We’re looking to build on this with an expanded program that spotlights our archives and includes Palmyra High School students.
Hope you can make it!
