Our book signing/Open house

Thank you everybody that came out in the intrepid weather for the Open House and Book Signing of  The Images of America Nanticoke.

 The pre-Halloween storm here in Nanticoke dropped between 3 and 5 inches of snow by 9:00p.m.,way too early for a mid fall day.  The leaves barely off the trees became wet and heavy.  The roads by 10:00a.m. when our doors opened, where only wet.  But, conditions quickly worsened.  In spite of the  terrible weather local Nanticoke Historians came and shared memories and experiences brought back threw the pages of Chet's book.

Your turn out for our event was unexpected considering the weather.  We were so pleased to see you and thank you for coming out. There was a variety of tee shirts, postcards, photos, calenders, previously published books, vintage yearbooks and other memorability available  for visitors.  Chet enjoyed visiting with visitors while signing their books and shared stories, answered questions and offered information about the photos in his book.  He encouraged visitors to contribute from their attics, closets and basements, vintage photos that chronicle the history of our town.  Chet pointed out that younger generations may not realize the value of the old photos and that they should be preservered and be shared so that we can understand where we came from and how we got to where we are. Again, Thank you for your generosity and patronage.   We are so grateful that you care and that we can enrich your memories and experiences.
