February 26th 7:30pm meeting with program on Youngs Paint and Varnish Company

20 February 2019

We’re delighted that we will be meeting Tuesday evening February 26th, 7:30PM, at the Scotch Hills
Country Club, 820 Jerusalem Rd., Scotch Plains, NJ 07076. Our program is “Youngs Paint and Varnish Company”. We’re lucky to have one of the family members that last helped managed what once was a premier decorating store for this area: Larry Andrews, grandson of the founder of Youngs in 1925. The local high school TV will be filming so we will we be able to have a record in our museum.

No meeting or Osborn/Cannonball house opening in January

25 January 2019

Just a reminder that we have no meeting in January nor is the Cannonball House museum open. We’ve found through experience that few people want to venture forth in this cold month. We will post the program for our February meeting just as soon as it is finalized.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Come one! Come all!
