I've added a new Facebook page. Of course everyone is welcome here at the Nanticoke History Online Blog Spot. But, because we are Nanticoke History you may not be entirely comfortable with your posts or input on events of history outside of Nanticoke. That's all right, they are still welcome. My new page offers a wider range of latitude. A lot of times events not directly related to Nanticoke affect our lives here. We want to know and share some of those special memories. We encourage you to share events or stories of Nanticoke on our Facebook page . But, they will be welcome as well on NE PA Retro.
Of course our coal mining heritage is an important and integral part of who we are. How Nanticoke developed and grew through some hard times, the depression, floods and World War II showed the strength and endurance of the people here. But, there is so much more. Our businesses, community, schools, churches and special events not only in Nanticoke but our surrounding communities contribute to the aggregate of our lives and our past. Remember and share some of your most rewarding and happy times with us. Let us say, Oh yes! I remember! What you post or contribute does not have to be 200 years old. To the Children of recent generations, President Kennedy's visit here or the Bicentennial Celebration is of their time. As time progresses we will leave on to the next generation our heritage and past that will grow and progress with the generations to follow.
NE PA Retro is not intended to chronicle so much the events of our past but rather to share some of those special experiences. It may be a church picnic, a drive in theater that you once visited, school dances, special football or basket ball games or other memories that we share.
But most of all, it is about having a little fun and finding something in common with someone who yesterday did not know but is now a new friend. So, come visit, share and enjoy. And, say Yes! I' remember.
