On January 28 Harborcreek Historical Society hosted its annual membership meeting. Director John Skuce led a discussion about growing up in Harborcreek in the 1940s which sparked interesting conversations about school, hunting, farming, and neighbors. The Society’s Board of Directors and executive officers were voted on as well at the annual meeting. We thank John for his engaging presentation and welcome Jane Ingold to the board!
