Don’t forget to mark your calendars for this fall’s line-up of speakers. All meetings are held at St John’s UCC, Red Lion, at 7:00. Usually meetings are held on the fourth Thursday but in November, we hold our meeting on the third Thursday. We’re looking forward to seeing you all after the summer break. Stop back again to see the complete list of speakers.
The Red Lion Area Historical Society will hold its
regular monthly meeting on January 24, 2019. The speaker will be Mr. Terry Bluett. His presentation is

Heroes in York County.
The meeting will be held at St John’s UCC, 161 North
Main Street, Red Lion, at 7:00 pm. Entrance is off the parking lot behind the
church. All meetings are free and open to the public. The meeting will be

The Red Lion Area Historical Society will hold their final presentation of 2018 on Thursday, November 15, at 7:00 pm. The featured speaker will be Society member, Tom Brenner. Tom’s presentation will discuss the Miller Brothers and how they helped shape early Red Lion. He will give a brief history of the Miller family beginning from the 1780s. Tom will tell us about three Miller brothers, William H., Jacob A., and David A., who moved into Red Lion in the early 1880s. They had an impact on the early development along East Broadway, on well-known town landmarks, and on early town organizations and elected offices.
The meeting is free and open to the public at St John’s UCC, 161, North Main Street, Red Lion, PA. There is abundant parking at the rear of the church. If Red Lion Area Schools are canceled, the meeting will be canceled too. For more information, please call Robin Miller, 717-244-1912.

Red Lion schools are closed for tomorrow, March 22. It is our policy to cancel meetings when the school cancels. Therefore, we won’t have a meeting this month. We’ll reschedule our speaker for the Fall. Our next meeting will be our annual Spring Banquet. Reservation forms and details are in the last newsletter.
