Please join us for our next public meeting on November 21, at St. John UCC on North Main Street, at 7:30 pm. Please note that this meeting is one week earlier than usual because of Thanksgiving. There is plenty of parking behind the church and the meeting entrance is directly off the lot.
This month we will feature Factory Whistles of York presented by Don Ryan. Mr. Ryan has played Christmas carols on the New York Wire Cloth factory whistle for 58 years and he will explain the process. In addition, he will tell us about the functions of the traditional whistles used to call and dismiss workers.
