Meeting on 24 April 2012 – Show and Tell

10 April 2012

This is a community wide “Show and Tell” so we invite and encourage everyone to bring a piece of their history.  Share it and its story with us.  Some of the Osborn Cannonball Museum’s recent acquisitions will be presented.

This monthly meeting of the Historical Society of Scotch Plains and Fanwood is free and open to everyone.  It will take place on Tuesday evening, April 24th, 2012, starting at 8:00PM.

Please note, for this month only, it will be held at the historic Fanwood Train Station on North and Martine Avenues.  Fittingly it will be held in the Fanwood Historical Commission Museum on the first floor.

Refreshments and fellowship follow the meeting.  So come on down to the old train station and journey back in time.

For further information contact Connie Klock at 908-232-9489 or contact us.

Hope to see you there!
