Enjoy your summer! See you in September! 
Welcome Back From Summer!!September marks the beginning of our fall series of programs. In fact, it all happens Thursday September 20 at 7:00. We meet at the State Line/Ruritan Community Building in State Line, PA.  Mark your calendar for this event.

Welcome Back From Summer!!


Our program will be guest speaker, Susan Lyons. Susan is a Franklin County native who grew up in Waynesboro and Greencastle. She is a retired school teacher, mostly at the middle school level. She is a docent at the Franklin County Historical Society, and also serves as a mentor and judge with the National History Day. Susan and her family have lived in Shippensburg since 1971.

Susan will present: Elizabeth Keckley, modiste to Mary Todd Lincoln.

Elizabeth was a much sought after dress maker to Mrs. Jefferson Davis and many other prominent Ladies in Washington D.C.. She was introduced to Mary Todd Lincoln who asked her to design clothing for her and eventually became her modiste. Her life story is fascinating and tragic at the same time.

Enjoy your summer!!
